Catherine Lucktaylor's Profile

About

I live in far West Cornwall, UK with my 9 year old son. We are surrounded by gorgeous turquoise sea, ancient stone circles, sacred wells and the wild Cornish landscape, which is the inspiration for my hand built ceramics.

I am passionate about working with clay and particularly love raku fired ceramics.
All of my pieces are handbuilt using traditional techniques such as coiling and pinching the clay into shape. I hand paint my own glazes onto the ceramics before they are fired in my raku kiln in my garden.

Raku is an ancient Japanese technique which basically means enjoyment.
I remove red hot pieces from the kiln and plunge into sawdust. This exciting and dynamic technique produces unpfredictable yet stunning results. I also run Raku Ceramics Courses for small groups in my studio…

I love living close to nature, swimming in the sea, clifftop walks and exploring ancient sacred sites and being a mother to my amazing son.

I sell my ceramics in galleries in Cornwall and London and you can see more of my creations on my website: www.lucktaylorceramics.co.uk
