This week, here is look at Vanessa Lucas' impeccable studio at the Nicholas Building. In addition to being an accomplished ceramicist, Vanessa also is a talented clothing designer and tailor. Vanessa's ceramics practice takes place in picturesque Mansfield, leaving her free to centre the 'textiles' side of things in her very own corner of the Nicholas Building, which is conveniently close to several important suppliers like Buttonmania and Tessuti!
Vanessa creates bespoke special occasion and everyday garments for a select and loyal clientele, and you can view some samples of finished works and works-in-progress in the images that follow. It's so remarkable when we meet an artist who is skilled in not one but two(!) crafts... we hope you enjoy this look into the 'other side' of Vanessa's creative pursuits.
