Laura McKinley

Laura's interest in play and the inviting qualities of glass are strong motifs throughout her work.

Toys trigger memories and evoke emotions. Laura wants to arouse this compulsion to play and create a sense of childlike curiosity of the world, conveying these qualities in an adult's eyes.

She wishes to make objects that encourage interaction with the viewer, by making playful and tactile familiar yet unfamiliar objects that evoke past experiences. Using hot glass Laura is creating installations of components that reference toys of childhood, a subject matter that will directly contradict the delicate and fragile material in which they are created.
