Lisa Hammond (b. 1956) is a British studio potter. She is a Fellow of the Craft Potters Association of Britain and its vice chair. She has specialised in vapour glazing since leaving college, first using salt and, since the early 1980s, soda glaze. She produces a range of functional ware for the preparation, cooking and serving of food. Alongside functional ware, she makes a range of work that she describes as "individual and playful".


Hammond worked in Greenwich, London, from 1979 and set up a studio at Okehampton, Devon. In 2003-2004, she spent three months making and firing in the Mino, Gifu, area for several exhibitions in Japan. She taught ceramics at Goldsmith's College, London, and has lectured and exhibited widely.


Hammond has been described as one of the most committed and driven of modern studio potters, "one of a small number who have clearly inherited the mantle of studio pioneers like Michael Cardew" and "the best woman potter working in Britain." Her work is represented in museums and collections in the UK and abroad.
