WILD THINGS

A Devon duo with an orig­i­nal take on ce­ram­ics

Town & Country (UK) - - COUNTRY -

Af­ter grad­u­at­ing, Vicky Lindo and her hus­band Bill Brookes dab­bled in em­broi­dery, horol­ogy and even mak­ing barom­e­ters, but it wasn’t un­til 2009 that they found their call­ing. In­spired by the 19th- and 20th-cen­tury slip­ware at the gallery where she was work­ing, Lindo took a course in sgraf­fito – the art of dec­o­rat­ing pot­tery by scratch­ing the sur­face to re­veal the coloured glaze be­neath. Such was her tal­ent that the cou­ple now run a thriv­ing busi­ness from Devon’s Pigeon Club Pot­tery; their whim­si­cal, an­i­mal-mo­tif de­signs are stocked ev­ery­where from Por­to­bello Road to the V&A Shop. fh www.vick­ylindo.co.uk
