My work starts with the clay, I make dyes and stain my own clay bodies.  I can then choose from this palette of 40 or so colours.  Once I have selected a palette for a particular piece, I ‘laminate’ layers and layers of these coloured clays together to form a block, (*think filo pastry! – says Lucy), from which sheets are sliced and joined to create unique patterned sheets of clay – these form the walls of each piece.
