After studying Ceramics at Wimbledon and Camberwell Art Schools, Lucy Burley moved out of London and works from a studio in the Hampshire countryside, an environment that Lucy finds a great source of inspiration. Responding to the changes in seasons, Lucy creates a feeling of harmony through simple forms and a broad but delicate colour palette. Bowls, jugs and bottles are thrown on the wheel using white earthenware clay. Lucy finishes the vessels with a smooth earthenware glaze of her formulation, which gives an eggshell like texture. The work has a sense of timeless simplicity intended to be both decorative and functional. Lucy's ceramics are partly inspired by the still life paintings of Italian artist Giorgio Morandi, whose work featured groups of vessels and were noted for their tonal subtlety. Lucy uses various tones of specific colours, aiming to create related vessels that have the same sense of belonging to a family.
