About LydiaBarclayStudio

Sales 26
On Etsy since 2017

My work is hand made in small batches in my Surrey studio.

I am interested in the balance between purely decorative and functional ware and make a range of vases, bowls and boxes inspired by my domestic and local environment. My forms are soft, rounded and pleasing to hold.

​I make ceramics with porcelain, by hand-building and using press moulds I have cast myself.

​I love the feel and look of unglazed porcelain and use glaze only occasionally to contrast with the matt smooth surface of the fired clay body. The second firing ensures my work is watertight and functional.

​Because my work is handmade I allow any subtle making lines to be seen and felt as they are part of the integrity of the object and make each piece unique.

Colour is an important part of my work used sparingly to enhance the whiteness of the porcelain. I decorate my pieces using coloured slip inlay or black onglaze.

All postage, including international is tracked.

I believe in sustainability and where possible packaging is eco friendly and biodegradable. Your package will be wrapped in paper and in a cardboard box made from recycled paper or a pre-used padded envelope. This helps keep costs down as well as reduce landfill and plastic use. We have also swapped over from plastic parcel tape to a paper version but may be using up the last of our stock. If your purchase is wrapped in plastic bubble wrap it will be reclaimed, re-used and re-purposed from another clean source.
