Lizzie Simpson

Lizzie is a Designer-Maker, with an experimental approach to ceramics, having developed new process which combines digital technology and traditional hand-building techniques.

As much as we’re expected to somehow portray a degree of seriousness in our work she is unwilling to grow up and accept this, instead she’ll pretend. Lizziesimpson.co.uk

As well as a keen ceramicist she also draws and paints day to day things on her blog: Lizsimp.tumblr.com
