Lily Reid

Lily’s stoneware and porcelain ceramic forms are a unique mix of wheel thrown pottery and hand-built sculpture, that depict British wildlife asleep within the flora (such as foxtail and Yorkshire fog). The inspiration for her sculptures evoke the golden age of British children’s illustration, such as Beatrix Potter and Walter Crane (Aesop’s Fables). Her work is also an ode to the ceramics industry, which she has grown to love. This being the sculpture, wheel thrown pottery and the sgraffito techniques used to create each piece. Amy aims to ‘depict a unique take on the British countryside that is both contemporary in form and beautiful to look at."
