Lucy Turner

Having become acquainted with ceramics during a Foundation Diploma at the Bristol School of Art and subsequently developing that material relationship through a voluntary role with local practitioners, Lucy landed on the Ceramics BA Hons course at Cardiff School of Art and Design in 2018.

During her time in Cardiff she focused on the production of reduction fired stoneware, the development of glaze from self-sourced materials and the interrogation of what constitutes "sustainable" practice - where do our conceptions of what is and what is not sustainable come from?

Lucy is an talented thrower, a gifted communicator and experienced instructor.
