Vanessa Lucas has been a maker of bespoke clothing and ceramics for over 20 years and has undertaken many private, restaurant and Gallery commissions.
With a focus on function, Lucas incorporates subtle references to the natural world within a range of porcelain tableware. The smooth satin surfaces enable the vessels to emanate an intrinsic luminescence. Each form is carefully refined to provide functional ease and visual pleasure using the techniques of mould-making and slip-casting.
Exhibiting regularly in Australia and with work in public gallery collections in Victoria, Lucas has also exhibited in the Design Category of the 10th Mino Ceramics Festival in Japan. In 2017 the pearl teapot won best functional teapot at The Sydney Teapot Show and a collection of jugs won The Clunes Ceramic Award.
