Sticks and Stones

Kansas City, Missouri

Top shop for gifts.

Buyers bought gifts from this shop and gave them 5-star reviews!

Announcement    For the duration of 2020 I will be making work to cover the cost of electrical work needed to run the kiln in my new home studio! Having my own kiln will be so beneficial and will make production much more efficient. To cover the cost of the pricey electrical you can order pieces that are "made to order," meaning I will begin their production when you place your order. There is about a 3-4 week production time, so be sure to get your Christmas orders in soon! And don't forget, if you are local to Kansas City use the code localpickup to pick up your order locally and avoid shipping costs. Thank you for helping me make this goal happen!

About LauraTylerStudio

Sales 222
On Etsy since 2017

I love creating things that bring us closer to the natural world.

The history of my work comes from my Midwestern roots and the flora and fauna that inhabit it. As a little girl I was fascinated by my grandmother's house and her quirky collections. I loved staring at each taxidermy head and rural artifact that littered her walls - stuffed pheasants, horseshoes, antlers, elk mounts, a jackalope.

While working on my Masters in Fine Arts at the University of Missouri these collections became the visual history that heavily influenced my work. Graduate school challenged me to research society's interaction with nature and the desire to collect it and bring it inside as a souvenir. I couldn't stop reading about Victorian curiosity cabinets and natural history museums and thinking about their parallel to my grandmother's home collections.

Now, as an artist, I value making pieces that allow people to bring a piece of nature into their homes. I love creating things that bring us closer to the natural world and hope that my pieces bring a little bit of nature into your daily lives.
