Cornish Stoneware Clay
Laura Specialises as a Designer maker in Ceramics. At the heart of her work is the exploration of site-specific folklore in Cornwall, where she lives.this is expressed through the choice of materials, pattern & illustration. Folklore is about the every day and being reachable.
The work is hand thrown, brushed with the dark slip & then decorated using a sgraffito technique, before being dipped in a white tin glaze. These layers and brush marks that you can see represent the idea of storytelling being passed down through the generations, much akin to Chinese Whispers. some parts are brushed over and lost whilst other marks are clear for us all to see. The slate/blue colour is a reminder of the moors, skies and sea. All of these separate elements are pulled together with a pinch of fun using functional vessels as a canvas.
