Who is Lucy Rigg?

lucyriggLucy Rigg is a Seattle area artist who began her art career by creating dough people which she soldĀ  at the University Street Fair in 1970. According to a 1992 Seattle Times article, the “figures, called Rigglets, along with Rigg, herself, became fixtures at both indoor and outdoor fairs throughout the area.” In 1979, Enesco picked up the line and began producing bisque porcelain bear figures first with the name “Rigglets” and then “Lucy & Me”. These have become highly collectible since Enesco ceased production in 1994. Enesco produced over 1000 figurines,mugs,musical figurines,bells,jack in boxes, banks, cookie jars and plush bears.

Lucy Riggs has her own company “Lucy & Co” which is based in Edmonds, WA and sells her designs in paper goods like stationery, wrapping paper, etc. This company is still in business. Lucy has also designed scrapbook and baby items for CR Gibson, Frances Meyer and It Takes Two. Riggs has presence on Facebook and Linked In
