Artist Profile: Meet ceramic artist Lucinda Mudge

Where do you live? 

I live in a small wooden house on the (currently wild and windy) Keurbooms Beach, near Plettenberg Bay with my husband Sam and our 19th month old daughter, Biscuit. We moved in last week from our mansion on the hill next door to Lord and Lady Cadbury of Chocolate fame. We had to move out because they did not like our hippyish tractor tyre swing. Our rented house has a dolphin theme throughout and the furniture is a bit sticky to touch. But it is sweet and we call it home.

I saw on your blog that you’ve recently returned to SA, what made you come back? 

After four years in London we came running home with our babe in arms. I grew up in this area and we liked the idea of living in paradise. Sam is able to work remotely for his London company, so we are the lucky ones, living the dream.

Your ceramics  seem to have a wonderful sense of humour about them, tell us more about that?

Life can be quite funny, depending on how you look at it. Even sad little lives, you can have the edge. It’s all in your mind.

Where can we buy your ceramics (I saw they’re available at a shop in Kalk Bay – any way for Jo’burgers to get hold of them?) 

Knysna Fine Art. Trent Read has a good selection of pots, and some larger picture tiles. Two commemorative William and Kate Platters grace his walls too.  I need a good outlet in Jhb.

Any upcoming exhibitions?

I am taking a break and have packed up my studio. I need to focus on other things. Last week I had a list of things to do that went as follows: Move house. Buy a car. Design a new house (we are building a house here). And have a baby – this wed 18th May.  We are half way through. Busy week ahead…

And here I thought I had a busy week! Good luck Lucinda and may your baby be healthy and of course, handsome.
