Virtual Ceramic Craft Fair: Lucy Joines

I primarily work in ceramics thrown on the wheel, creating three dimensional forms using a local stoneware clay. I then decorate using underglazes and gold lustre to create plants, flowers and wildlife designs to express my passion for the magical natural world in the place where I live in Cornwall.

I first learnt to throw in Japan in 1996, when I was awarded the ‘Ferdinand Zweig Memorial Scholarship’ to travel and study Japanese pottery as part of my Ceramics BA Hons Degree at Falmouth College of Art. I have been inspired by Japanese ceramics ever since and continue this love of East meets West as a volunteer at The Leach Pottery in St Ives.

After 16 years as an Art & Ceramics teacher, I am now lucky enough to focus all my time working in my studio in Mount Hawke, exploring my ceramics further and continuing a passion to express the magic of nature.
