Lucy Baxendale is a Ceramicist, Illustrator & Community Artist based in rural Herefordshire.
Using a form of surrealist automatism, she draws from her unconscious to produce pen & pencil 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 porcelain structures, using a variety of different hand-building techniques.
Her unusual homeware range, inspired by imaginary worlds, is a playful attempt to bring fun to function. She makes porcelain monster planters that can be stacked to create your own creature, spoons and juicers that have faces and little leafy creatures that will hold your incense for you. Her range is ever-expanding as she dreams up new pieces she could make.
Lucy also undertakes illustration work and produces large murals for clients and welcomes challenging and unusual commissions!
