DECO editor Laureen Rossouw has nominated ceramicist Lisa Firer’s Marbled Vase series for the annual Most Beautiful Object In South Africa Award that occurs at the Design Indaba Expo.This is what is said about Firer’s vases:

“The surfaces of these porcelain vessels are born out of a recent trip to Italy and its churches, which reflect the beauty and range of colored marbles and granite. Using off-cuts of black and white clay from previous projects, which might otherwise be discarded, these are truly recycled vessels.”
