This flower bucket made by ceramic artist Lydia Smith is functional and sculptural. A playful vase form, with a finely pulled handle decoratively looped over the top. The makers mark is highlighted with a blue colourant under the glaze.
Kilkenny based Lydia Smith is a 2020 graduate of the prestigious DCCI Pottery Skills and Design course. Lydia originally trained in fashion design at the University of Westminster. She worked for British design houses before fulfilling her passion for pottery. She works with porcelain, which has a ripeness for mark-making, and acts as a ready canvas for colourful glazes. Lydia combines the shapes created on the wheel with hand-building techniques to create technically challenging, unique pots that mark moments of joy
