Lucille Lewin’s work is the result of research into the origins of 18th Century European porcelain, and the alchemists who invented it. The work references the Victorian Cabinet of Curiosities, and the early microscopic photographs of the natural world by Karl Blosfeldt. Lewin takes great inspiration from the crystal rooms at the Science Museum and the Pitt Rivers Museum in Oxford. Lewin’s sculptural ceramic objects explore the relationship between form, chemistry and process.
Lewin studied the City Lit Diploma Fine Art and Ceramics from 2012 – 14 and MA Ceramics and Glass at the Royal College of Art 2016 – 17. Recent exhibitions include: The Society of Designer Craftsmen, Mall Galleries, London, 2015; The Emerging & Established, Christie’s, London 2017; and Material:Earth: The New British Clay Movement, Messums, Somerset, 2017.
