Lydia Hardwick is a ceramic artist sculpting objects that look very little like ceramic (which is my favorite type of ceramic work). She studied at the Royal College of London and has completed two residencies in Scotland and Germany. The former leading to a show later this year at the An Tobar Gallery.
As another artist I discovered through Buy Some Damn Art, I wanted to feature her on my blog because her pieces inspire me to make some wild lacunose onlays. Her color choices are brilliant and the abstract shapes she creates are captivating in their organic and sometimes sickly qualities.
