About Lucy

Lucy's journey in ceramics began as a child, inspired by her grandmother’s pottery, and she began to develop her ideas through clay during her early years.

In 1993, she moved to Cornwall to study ceramics at Falmouth and fell in love with Cornwall. She found the art and creative energy so exciting, it was here she met her husband and decided to make a home in Cornwall.

During her studies at Falmouth, she was awarded a The Ferdnand Zweig Scholarship to further her practice in Japan. This experience was life changing in many ways and she learn't many new technical skills and processes in pottery. One of which was learning the traditional throwing method 'off the hump' on the wheel at Joetsu University. The disciplined way of teaching was very effective and inspiring and she went from throwing rice bowls ‘off the hump’ to teapots.


Today Lucy's ceramics are inspired by her love of nature and the wild. Much of her childhood was spent freely roaming the land of her family farm in North Devon. She uses the hare as a symbol of this childhood, there were often fleeting glimpses of them in the fields. The book 'The Masquerade' by Kit Williams was also a child hood favorite. Lucy and her brother would try to spy the hare on each page and work out the riddles to find the treasure, which was a golden hare. Lucy uses gold lustre as a final detail on all of her pieces to further symbolise the magic of childhood.
