Lucy Smith has a reputation for designing and making handcrafted features to high standards. I hope you enjoy the experience of choosing a piece of work that is made from start to finish just for you.
Choosing a feature for your garden is a personal process and requires a number of considerations such as placement, desired effect, water sound and installation requirements.
I am always happy to answer any question so please contact me and we can run through the options and the process of installation.
I can make site visit when necessary, and pictures and site plans always help me to advise you.
Another consideration is which material you would prefer.
Ceramic – Using the press moulding technique, and combined with extensive modelling I recreate the piece from moulds created from the original.
When dry the feature will be glazed and fired to 1240 degrees so ensuring that it can remain outside all year round.
I work with a stoneware clay sourced from Staffordshire and am happy to discuss variations of glaze.
Bronze resin - is made up of bronze powder mixed with resin and a catalyst to make a solid, durable and frost proof material. The surface patination is skilfully applied, using various chemicals that react with the bronze. Sculptures placed in the garden will dull over time but can be polished back to show their bronze highlights.
Order times are usually 10 – 12 weeks.
I can arrange delivery anywhere in the country and shipment to anywhere in the world.

I look forward to talking to you.
