Approach

Vanessa’s work reflects her philosophy that utility is important when working with clay, but the tangibility of function must not be at the expense of beauty

A maker of bespoke objects for over 20 years, Vanessa Lucas trained first in ceramics education and later in clothing design

In her work with both cloth and clay, her unwavering priority is to make pieces which function seamlessly in everyday life

She designs clothing in conjunction with individual clients, and crafts it in a workroom in the CBD of Melbourne

Using the same meticulous attention to the balance between the visual and the utilitarian, Vanessa has created a range of delicate slipcast porcelain tableware
