ABOUT ME

Lucy Charalambou MA (RCA)

I am inspired by colour, pattern and textures in nature and love the changing of the seasons and the garden. I am fascinated by the symmetry found in nature, often using the close-up details of natural objects as inspiration for my art work. I have a passion for the medium of ceramics as I can combine my enjoyment of drawing with my interest in 3D work. I make both sculptural pieces and functional pots, using bright underglazes in a decorative manner to strive for harmony and beauty.

 

In my 20’s I studied art and design at the Royal College of Art, London and then worked as a freelance designer, specialising in woven textile design. During my 30’s raising my children became my priority and I retrained as a primary teacher. I continued to create in my spare time and explored different mediums, such as Pottery, Stained Glass, Life drawing, Portraiture, Abstract Painting and Sculpture.


In 2010 I had a solo exhibition of my paintings and ceramics and started selling my art. I have received several commissions in particular for commemorative ceramic flowers (after I made one for my mother’s grave). In 2017 I moved to Eastbourne for a change of lifestyle and to devote myself more to my art practice.
