Day 254: Ultra-skilled London ceramicist Billy Lloyd
“London-based ceramicist Billy Lloyd has been making quite a name for himself since setting up his own studio in 2011. A graduate of Camberwell College of Art, Billy spent five years after finishing education honing his craft through apprenticeships with local practitioners, improving his throwing skills and refining his design sensibilities. As a result his aesthetic is immensely polished for a relatively young practitioner, each piece handled with masterful care and attention.
Billy specialises in thrown tableware; functional articles with a simple, refined colour palette throughout that he produces by hand in meticulously detailed runs. His work is simple in appearance, but belies an impressive understanding of materials and process that mark him out as a practitioner of exceptional skill.”
