Project Description

Lucy Burley

Lucy’s work is partly inspired by the still-life paintings of Giorgio Morandi; and she strives for the simplicity and quiet conveyed by his pictures of groups of bottles and other vessels.  Lucy wants her pots to have the same sense of being in family groups, related but non-identical as she strives for balance and harmony of form and colour.  Whilst at college Lucy formulated a smooth, semi-matt earthenware glaze and uses this as a base to which she adds oxides and stains to obtain a spectrum of colours both subtle and vivid.
