Lucy Morton

Lucy originally completed a Bachelor of Art Theory at the College of Fine Arts – UNSW before pursuing a career in both the Arts and Advertising. After moving to the Inner West she fulfilled a 20 dream to go back and study jewellery design. She graduated with an Advanced Diploma of Jewellery and Object Design from the Design Centre Enmore in 2015 and is currently completing her final year of the Certificate III in Jewellery Manufacture.

Lucy creates pieces that are of a sensory nature. They imply a feeling, whether perceived or actual, of movement through the use of organic flowing lines. Her works have a sense of tactility, enticing the viewer to want to hold and feel them in order to appreciate their sculptural form.

The need to create is part of who she is; great pleasure is achieved via the creative evolution of each piece; from the raw material right through to a polished three dimensional form. The underlying motive for what Lucy creates is that each piece be aesthetically coherent and pleasing to the eye.

Lucy was awarded a Graduate Residency at SquarePeg in early 2018 and is now a permanent resident artist of SquarePeg Studios.
