packaged hearts

Welcome

Hi Laura here, I run a small ceramics business from my studio at home in Littleborough, Lancashire.

I first started working with clay 11 years ago, I immediately fell in love with this medium and started working from home in my own studio.

My work has progressed alongside my own learning as I have experimented with different types of clays, glazes and oxides.

I love working with textures in clay, using everything from vintage lace and paper doilies to wallpaper. I love the way that adding texture to the clay can give the finished object a very different dimension. It gives the clay movement and a fine textured feel to it.

I particularly like working with porcelain because it allows me to achieve the delicateness and movement that I want my pieces to have.

I am inspired by materials and garments and the history and stories that they tell. This reflects in my work as texture, purity, movement and the symbolism of buttons.

My current work shows the texture of the vintage materials that I have been impressing into the clay formed hearts and the addition of glazes highlights this texture.
