Win: St Lucy Designs Cambridge china - worth £80
Celebrating the latest china collection from Cambridge brand St Lucy Designs, we've got a full set - all featuring city illustrations - to give away
Known for turning her late father’s illustrations - of everything from children and animals to Cambridge’s iconic architecture - into a unique collection of fine bone china, Lucy Burt-Gray has just unveiled a new range under her St Lucy Designs label.
Featuring watercolour and ink depictions of classic city scenes, including King’s College chapel and punts on the Cam, it comprises a two-pint pitcher and three scales of tankard, all hand decorated in Stoke on Trent.
“My late father, D.H.Steven, taught veterinary medicine at Cambridge,” explains Lucy, “and he used to illustrate his lectures with his own drawings for which he is still remembered.
“We discovered hundreds of sketches depicting university and veterinary life and, as people really liked his doodles, in 2008 I decided to produce greeting cards, then later fine bone china, using his work.”
A percentage of each purchase goes to Camvet, a small charity dedicated to raising funds for the Queen's Veterinary School Hospital. “Lucy contacted us many years ago wanting to make good use of her father's illustrations. Her enthusiasm and ideas were captivating - and she was keen that his beautiful drawings continue to support the hospital which he was so passionate about,” explains Camvet’s Katy Stevenson.
“The hospital runs on a not-for-profit basis and sales of Lucy's beautiful ceramics help to fund essential equipment and facilities for diagnosing and treating the many animals referred here. We adore working alongside Lucy and are so grateful for her magical support.”
