Laurie Caffery Harris grew up in Boone, North Carolina, a small town surrounded by the peaks and valleys of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Encouraged by her creative parents, she spent her childhood enthusiastically exploring different mediums, primarily painting and drawing.

Laurie received her Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Studio Art with an emphasis in ceramics in 2014. Since then, she has continued to embrace every opportunity to progress her craft. In 2019 she completed a two year Artist in Residency at Odyssey Clayworks in Asheville, NC.

Her artwork is exhibited and collected nationally and internationally. Currently, Laurie continues to create her narrative-driven, decorative ceramics from her home studio in Asheville alongside her husband, her son, and her dogs.
