Lucas Clay, located in Sagamore Hills, Ohio is a collaboration of two artists, Chip and Christine Lucas. Their goal is to expose the enthusiast to the various worlds of ceramics. As part of their adventure, they strive to achieve a physical and emotional connection through surface, form and color in every piece they create. They believe art lovers should have access to quality and affordable pottery.
Chip works on the pottery wheel and Christine does the hand-building. We complement each other. It’s a team effort supporting each other, bouncing ideas, glaze techniques, forms and projects.
They mainly work with porcelain and decorate using contemporary colors. Once fired, vessels are dishwasher, microwave, oven and food safe. They also work with Raku – a very old technique widely seen in the southwest. They use horse hair to decorate vessels along with glazes, which are mostly jewel tones.
