Laura Plant

Laura is fascinated by the human desire to make functional objects beautiful, as it shows a need for self-expression that is impractical. Ceramic has a familiar quality: as a material common in homes and used daily around the world it is almost comforting, yet these everyday objects can be incredibly beautiful in their own right. Having grown up near Stoke-on-Trent, the heritage of the area has been an important source of inspiration to her.

Laura combines traditionally industrial processes with craft skills to create her work. Material exploration is at the heart of her design process, and she loves exploring the qualities of the ceramic surface. Pouring the glaze allows slight variations in thickness and an organic line where the glaze ends. The balance between chance and control means that whilst the design is the same, every piece is different. Exposing the beautiful surface of the clay body also creates a contrast with the glaze.

Laura is based in Staffordshire.
