Lucille wins young masters MAYLIS GRAND ceramicS prize
21 June 2017
"Lucille Lewin has been announced as the winner of the £1,500 Young Masters Maylis Grand Ceramics Prize, which is supported by collector and philanthropist Maylis Grand. This strand of the Young Masters Art Prize was launched in 2014 to give a separate platform for ceramics and highlight the creative and innovative potential of this artistic medium. She was chosen from 10 shortlisted artists for her work that the judges described as 'completely original'
The judges, Janice Blackburn, former Curator of Arts and Crafts at Sotheby's; collector Preston Fitzgerald; collector and philanthropist, Maylis Grand and the Crafts Council's Daniella Wells, continued: 'We were looking for originality and a strong voice and we were in total harmony about our choice of winner. Lucille's work is experimental, beautifully made and totally original; this is work with a future.'
Lucille Lewin's work is the result of research into the origins into 18th century European porcelain and the alchemists who invented it. Her pieces, which combine porcelain with other media including glass and salt crystals, references the Victorian Cabinet of Curiosities and the early microscopic photographs of the natural world by Karl Blosfeldt."
