These are a slice of heaven! Gorgeously crafted, delicate but sturdy enough. I like the “flaws”. Wrapped with such care. Big gift to open. Laura was kind to touch base in between to let me know long wait time.

I’m so glad I ordered this dish. Thank you for making these, Laura! Greetings from Hamburg :)
Laura and Pottery
I have never stopped loving working with clay since I discovered this magical material at the potters' association in Venice several years ago.
Doing pottery has taught me patience, it has taught me to give the clay and to give myself the time we both need.
Since the beginning of 2019 I have created my own home studio where I am currently focused on making most of works using my wheel, but other techniques divert me sometimes, such as slabs, pinching, handbuilding and handmade moulds.
I create all my glazes myself and I often like to leave some clay uncovered in order to feel the natural clay texture when I touch and use the object.
All my items are fired twice, reaching 1200 degrees Celsius when firing the glaze, making them very resistant.
Each piece I produce is one of a kind. I believe imperfections are part of every item's beauty, being in this way totally different from industrial production because you can see my human touch. We are all perfectly imperfect!
I get my inspiration from my own life, my own home, and my family.
During all these years , I Bochaleri, the Venetian associazione of Potters in Venice, has given me so much in taught me so much in terms of pottery and dear friends. I try to give back, being involved in the steering committee and the activities we organize to keep handmade ceramics alive in our city.
I love to make ceramics for tiny moments: handmade stoneware ceramics for the home. I get inspiration from my home and daily life. Mugs are among my favorite things. Doing pottery has taught me to give clay and myself the time we both need.
