Lisa Pettibone - Artist

At the core of Lisa’s work is a desire to capture tension, gravity and energy flow revealing them in kiln-formed glass. Her sculpture subtly coaxes the viewer to question how the work is formed and ponder the unseen forces shaping it. Strong line and distinctive shape merge with responses to the intersection of man and nature. Aside from developing art for exhibition, Lisa also works to commission where she can react to a variety of site-specific settings including architectural, natural or historical locations. Her recent work reflects a growing interest in astronomy and physics and she will be Artist in Residence at Mullard Space Science Laboratory (UCL) in Surrey.

Originally from California with a background in graphic design, Lisa is based in Surrey (UK) attaining a degree in 3D Design in Glass at UCA Farnham in 2005. Her work is held in private collections, was selected for The National Open Art Prize 2013 and appeared in the Corning Museum of Glass (New York) publication New Glass Review 35. In 2012-13 she completed two commissions for the National Trust – Lacock Abbey, Wiltshire and The Vyne near Basingstoke. In 2015 her work was included in the prestigious Discerning Eye exhibition in London and she taught a master class at the International Festival of Glass in Stourbridge UK. In 2017 she won the National Open Art competition Installation Prize and she is currently completing a MA Art and Science at Central Saint Martins in London.
