About Lloyd-Coombes Ceramics

Lloyd Coombes Ceramics was started by Felicity Lloyd Coombes after she completed a degree in 3D Design Ceramics at Loughborough University. Since then she has spent nearly 15 years building a reputation as an accomplished artist. Felicity sculpts a range of animal ceramics for exhibitions and galleries – but loves working on commissions.  The commission work she undertakes specialises in creating individually hand-sculpted and hand finished animal ceramics of your pet, (to find out more and see some photographs, please visit our Commissions page).

The range she produces focusses mainly on domestic British animals and wildlife from the British Isles.  She has exhibitions throughout the year showcasing her latest range. A selection of her work can be seen on the Gallery page.

All of the ceramics that are made in the studio are created using a unique (and secret!) technique that has been developed by Felicity.  The method she uses involves first sculpting in wire and then moulding clay around the wire,  the clay is then worked and manipulated into it’s the form of the animal before being fired, sometimes this is a process that may need to be repeated a number of times before the ceramic reaches her exacting standards.  The technique Felicity uses produces a deceptively light sculpture that is not too heavy for transport or to move around your home.   Once the animal ceramic has been completed, she will finish it with either a stain or it can be painted.

The sculptures created in the studio have movement and agility that captures the magic of the individual animal and the characteristics of the face and body in the ceramic. When the ceramics are finished, they show the vibrancy of the animal as if it was a living being. Every piece of artwork that is produced from the studio is a completely handmade individual ceramic.

About the Artist

Felicity Lloyd Coombes, Artist and Sculptor, realised her passion for ceramics at a young age and has built her life as an artist around this versatile medium. Growing up with animals and having an ongoing love for them, it was a natural blend to pair her artistic passions with her childhood love and has created Lloyd Coombes Studios.

Flick, as her friends and students call her, started with ceramics at Seaford College in Petworth and after successfully completing her A levels, earned her degree from Loughborough University. She knew she wanted to establish her own studio and, right after graduation, started full time in operating her own business. Today she offers private commission pieces and adult classes for those that want to learn the fine art of hand-sculpted ceramics.

Having grown up with animals – Flick has had an interest in creating animal art from the very beginning. She has found inspiration from her own beloved Italian gun dog, Ismay, from many years watching dogs run on the beach near her childhood home, and from many family holidays to Scotland where she could interact with different dog breeds.

She is fascinated with all animals but has a soft spot for canines. Dogs have a particular interest for Flick as she loves the different breeds and for what they were bred. She focuses on the dogs’ physique and their movements. By sculpting animals in movement the art is not static, it is alive with motion.
