Lucy Burley studied Ceramics at Wimbledon and Camberwell Art Schools, graduating with a BA Honours in 1996. She works from her studio in the Hampshire countryside, from which she makes her range of ceramics. Her vessels are thrown on the wheel using white earthenware clay. She developed a semi-matt earthenware glaze, smooth to the touch, to which she adds oxides and stains to obtain a wide spectrum of colours.
Lucy’s work is both decorative and functional. She finds her inspiration through the still lives of artist Giorgio Morandi, wanting her work to have the same harmony of form and colour.
