About

I'm a ceramic artist influenced by my graphic design and illustration background

I love to get my hands dirty, always have. My work has taken lots of turns over the years but I've always been driven to make and create. My main job is running a boutique graphic design and illustration studio from my home office. Being the type that needs variety, I picked up ceramic crafting when my family moved from Texas to Southern Arizona.

I started off on this ceramic journey by painting my illustrations on already made ceramic bisque, but eventually found that I wanted to be able to make things that weren't readily available, so I branched out to start hand-building and making vessels on the pottery wheel, and slip-casting. This past year, I bought my very own kiln and now I'm happy to say that I completely make every part of my ceramics by hand here in my studio!

I'm inspired by the southwestern desert landscape and influenced by my background as a graphic designer. I believe in making quality products with love in every detail.

    I'm a graphic designer and illustrator by day, ceramic crafter by night. My style is a mix of southwestern and folk. It aligns with my aesthetic as a designer. I love to incorporate bright colors and hand lettering to give each piece personality.

Hi, I'm Laura. I work as a graphic designer and illustrator during the day and a ceramic painter by night. I am inspired by nature, the desert and by the simple joy of making things with my hands, weather its crafting with my kids or drawing for a client.
