Lisa Hesselgesser's Profile

About

Hi there! Welcome to Monkey and Rabbit productions. My name is Lisa and I live in beautiful Oakland California. When I enter my studio the first thing I do is grab a ball of clay and start to pinch in a pinch pot fashion. Its just me and the clay and nothing in between. My pinching begins to find a shape and its usually birdlike and then I pick up some tools and I make a mouth happen and then some eyes and by then the piece has come alive and is smiling back at me or scolding me for some untold infraction. Sometimes I go into the studio with a list but sometimes I don't and the shape the clay takes dictates what's to be.
Thanks for visiting my shop, I hope you enjoy it and if you have any questions, comments or requests don't hesitate to contact me, I'd love to hear from you!
