Billy Lloyd is an award-winning designer and maker of ceramic tableware and interior products. He creates functional pieces, which are simple and refined.
Having graduated from Camberwell College of Arts in 2006, Billy went on to assist Lisa Hammond at Maze Hill Pottery for one year before embarking on a four year apprenticeship with acclaimed potter and writer Julian Stair. Upon winning the Cockpit Arts Award in 2011, Billy established his first independent studio in Deptford, where he remained for three years before moving to a larger space at the historic Iliffe Yard in 2014.
Billy has developed an innovative and ambitious style of working through a hands-on understanding of ceramic materials and processes. Furthermore, he has learnt various modelling and mould making techniques and developed relationships with highly skilled model makers, mould makers and specialist manufacturers in Stoke-on-Trent and abroad.
A practitioner of exceptional skill, Billy pushes the boundaries of his craft to explore how it can be beautifully and practically applied in domestic, public and commercial contexts.
