In The Studio

Get to know me.

I love to make new friends

Hi there,

I’m Laurie! I'm a ceramic artist. I love to work with my hands to make fun, functional artwork that sparks joy. I’m a new mom to a beautiful little one and I live in the mountains of North Carolina with my husband, son and doggies.

I love to chat about pottery

The Process

My work enfolds many different forming methods, from wheel throwing to slipcasting and everything in between. Once a piece is formed, the fun part begins: decorating! Each of my illustrations are carved into the surface with a thin knife and then inlaid so that they pop against the white clay. From there, each piece is hand painted and glazed and fired in my (*mostly) solar-powered electric kiln. Yay, sun!
