about lisa firer design

about-imagelisa firer design works with the uniqueness, organic forms and magic of translucency that hand built porcelain develops through the making and firing process. Hand-rolled, hand-embossed and imprinted slabs of porcelain create our ranges of tea-light holders, electric pendant lights, vases and vessels.

lisa firer design is a small team committed to the hand-made craft object, creating our own ongoing collections and bespoke pieces and projects for clients. Each piece is unique and the mark, energy and love of the maker is transferred into the work, especially through the tactility of clay. We are proud to contribute to the vibrant design and craft sector in South Africa and currently work from a studio in Woodstock, Cape Town.
