Lucy Baxendale

Lucy Baxendale is an explorer of imaginary worlds, inspired by folklore, mythology, ritual & traditions.

Using a form of a surrealist automatism, she draws from her unconscious to produce drawings which often become the inspiration for her ceramic work. She is curious about how you choose to translate a 2D drawing into a 3D form and pushes herself to build challenging structures in porcelain, using a variety of different hand building techniques.

Her unusual home-ware range comes from her desire to add playfulness to function, inspired by the imaginary world in her head.
