Lorna Bailey's artistic career began when she joined her father's business, LJB Ceramics in Stoke-on-Trent, as a painter.At the same time Lorna began designing a series of cottage, tree and abstract patterns based on the pottery of Clarice Cliff. In 1995 at the age of seventeen her House and Path and Sunburst patterns were put into full production. A collectors club was formed in September 1998 and in 2003 LJB Ceramics changed its name to Lorna Bailey Artware.
In January 2008 Lorna retired from the pottery industry to concentrate on her family life.
