Biography

My present work describes themes of fragility and impermanence, socially, politically, economically and environmentally and the ways in which we try to control this.

Lucille Lewin started with a career in fashion as founder and Creative Director of Whistles, running it for 35 years before selling in 2001 and moving to work as Creative Director of Liberty. Then, Lewin left fashion for a career in Art with a Diploma in Fine Art and Ceramics from CityLit in 2014. In 2017 she received her Masters in Ceramics & Glass at the Royal College of Art. She won the Young Masters Maylis Grand ceramic Prize in her last year of study.

Lewin has shown at the V&A (2019-20), Christies (2017), Connolly's (2018, 2020), Messums Wiltshire (2017) and Collect at the Saatchi Gallery (2018-2020). Her work is held in public and private collections internationally, including the prestigious Doddington Hall collection.
