Lesley McKenzie

Lesley initially trained as a graphic artist until in 1996 she decided to follow her desire to work as an independent artist, fusing her love of animals and nature with her artistic talents.
Lesley has worked in a variety of mediums and disciplines over the years and has won many competitions and awards for her work.

“My raku sculptures are all one off, handbuilt originals and are made using an earthenware clay which I mix to my own exact specification. All the ceramic sculptures must be hollow and are formed by wrapping a skin of clay over a paper maquette to create the basic body shape. I work the overall shape as the clay slowly dries, adding the final detailing as the clay becomes leather hard. After bisque firing, glaze is applied and the pieces are raku fired. Raku gives me the wonderful smoked crackle finish I desire and I enjoy the element of risk and surprise that each raku firing involves. I often use copper reduction glaze which gives the appearance of bronze.”
