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 seeks to achieve 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.
