Lucy Burley studied Ceramics at Wimbledon and Camberwell Art Schools, graduating with a B.A Hons. in 1996.
Her work is both decorative and functional: simple shapes which make sculptural groups. She isinspired by Giorgio Morandi’s still-life paintings and wants her work to have the same harmony of form and colour.
Lucy's ceramic vessels are thrown on the wheel using white earthenware clay. She has developed a semi-matt earthenware glaze, smooth to the touch, to which she adds oxides and stains to obtain a wide spectrum of colours. The interior glaze is watertight. Lucy's ceramic pieces look wonderful on their own, or for extra drama as part of a collection.
