Announcement   Saturday, May 14th. Listing is sold out. You Rock!!! Thank you for your amazing support of my work xoxoxo!

I am not accepting custom orders or reserve requests. I have promised everyone that I would I offer any available designs exclusively for purchase here on my Etsy site. I make every piece myself from my home studio in the hills of North Spokane County, USA. ® All Images and Text Copyright LauraMearsDesigns All Rights Reserved

If you do catch a listing, perhaps these answers to common questions I'm asked will be of interest to you ~
I offer my designs for purchase exclusively here on my Etsy site. I am not accepting reserves requests or custom orders.

Each listing I try to have 60 to 90+ items available. I publish all listings at once at exactly the time specified ...it takes a few seconds for everything to show up. People tell me you need to refresh the page often or you will not see items posted.

I often get emails from people asking me why their item disappeared from the cart, unfortunately this is the way that Etsy (and most shopping carts) works now. The item isn't guaranteed to be yours until you have checked out and paid. Unfortunately if someone else has the same item in their cart at the same time and they check out and pay first, the item will disappear from your cart. Some log into PayPal and Etsy before the listing. They also say a fast internet connection is needed and that it's best to purchase items separately to make sure to get at least one.

Lastly, about missing my listing notifications on FB - I will give everyone a heads up the day before a listing by posting photos of the available designs along with the time and date, on my FB Design page. https://www.facebook.com/LauraMearsDesigns/ To see my latest FB postings just hover cursor over the 'like' button... a menu should drop down and just click on 'get notifications' ..that should do it.

I will let everyone know my next listing date and time, when I know, here in my Etsy announcement section.

About

Form has always fascinated me...

I live on five beautiful acres nestled in the rolling hills of Eastern Washington. Lots of squirrels, rabbits and deer right outside my studio windows. It is common to see red-tail hawks, raven and a lovely array of wild birds soaring overhead. They give me wings. Maybe this is why I have the urge to put wings on everything I design.


I draw a lot of my inspiration from nature. My sisters and I were children of the forests, meadows and mountain. We spent many imaginative hours playing in the woods... leaving notes for the "fairies" on old, moss covered tree-stump castles. We believed in magic. That childhood imagination is alive within me still.


One of my favorite things to do is daydreaming new designs and bringing them into being. Then it's time to shift my focus to the process of making it possible to share my new ideas. I have no formal training in ceramics. My methods are time intensive and uniquely my own. After creating a design, I make a mold from the master, cast in porcelain, sculpt in more detail and undercuts, hand paint with translucent under glazes and high fire to cone 6 (2232°F) in my kiln. I find that each bead design has its own unique production needs. Because there is so much hands on time with each piece, the results vary, the energy and personality morphing from piece to piece.

I love chasing the "breath" of a design. It is my fondest desire to inspire creativity in others through my work... so that my "little sculptures" might find their way into another artist's daydream.

I've been playing with some kind of clay my whole life. Ever since my Mom brought some plasticine clay out to the lake one summer. I was 6 years old and I've just never stopped.
