Lisa Pappon is a famous Brazilian ceramic artist. An objective of her art over the course of many years, has been her search for a universal symbol. Lisa has travelled to contrasting places across continents, seeking an icon that unites all peoples regardless of their origin. One symbol that spans the globe and has recurred in the most diverse human cultures for centuries and millennia, is the apple. Legends, tales and myths from all over the world assign cultural significance and symbolism to the apple, attesting to the fascination it holds for all humankind. The apple has stood for temptation, love, happiness, beauty, perfection, power, health, eternal youth, magic and much more, not to mention that one of the world's most iconic cities is nicknamed the Big Apple.
Lisa Pappon was so impressed by this phenomenon that she began creating amazing, oversized sculptures in the shape of apples, with expressive outer surfaces made of gold or other metals, paint or varnish. The sculptures are not only an adornment for rooms indoors; special high-temperature firing techniques and sealing mean these ceramic works of art can be placed in surroundings such as gardens, terraces and other outdoor landscapes, creating a bridge between heaven and earth as the sun glitters on their sleek, glazed surfaces. Each stage of execution is a challenge and each finished sculpture is evocative in its exquisite consummation. The apple sculptures are created with love and devotion, handmade with attention to detail, and individually signed.
