Lucinda Brown

Lucinda graduated with a BA Hons in 3D Design Ceramics at the University of Wolverhampton. She went on to become artist in residence at Bilston Community College and was then asked to become a member of the Design Workers Foundation in Wolverhampton.

By chance she visited Claydon House in Buckinghamshire, a National Trust property and was bowled over by its beauty. She moved into the granary in 2001 and began renovating it to turn it into her studio.

Faces modelled in clay are cast in plaster. A strip of fine clay is pressed into the mould then wrapped around a paper tube. Features are refined just before the leather hard stage.

“Inspiration is found in many places, both within and without. My connection with the universe manifests in the expression of serenity on the faces that come alive in the clay beneath my fingers.”
