Artist of the Month

Lucy Redman, Potter & Plantswoman

For years Lucy has been interested in colour, form and texture applying all three to the gardens she designs. On closing The Lucy Redman Garden at Rushbrooke, near Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk in 2015 Lucy has immersed herself in other creative fields including Pin Art – using her knowledge of plant form to create intricate designs which caste stunning shadows when top lit.

Her love of stoneware is in her veins, her mother having made glazes for Robert Tarling of Kersey Pottery . As a teenager in the 80’s Lucy worked for Fred Bramham and Dorothy Gorst selling their pots when they took over Kersey Pottery, Suffolk. Having always collected stoneware she started to create them in 2015 and is really passionate about making pleasing tactile yet functional forms and combining these with sparkly glass capturing her love of colour. Little pots of joy to hold and behold!
