‘My home and studio is on a medieval farm near Colchester. I constantly find inspiration in the history of the generations who have worked this land since the Bronze Age.’ Lucy studied sculpture at Colchester School of Art graduating in 2006. Since then she has developed her practice by further study with Suffolk based sculptor Miles Robinson. The landscape which surrounds Lucy’s everyday life informs all of her work. It influences the flowing shapes which typically evolve into birdlike or botanical forms pared down into a seemingly simplistic state.Lucy loves the honesty of rusting metal and seeks to replicate this by using iron resin for much of her work when appropriate. She sculpts directly in resin, a robust method that works well for some of her work. Many pieces are then subsequently cast in bronze, a process which enhances the delicacy and elegance of her sculpture.Many of her sculptures work well both indoors as well as outside. www.lucylutyens.co.uk
