"When we are young, we have permission to be in awe, enthralled as much by the ocean as the glimpse of a chipmunk. As we get older, we often temper that joy for something more proper and restrained. I simply never did. From my earliest memories to this moment right now, I remain enamored of the flora and fauna of this world—its light side as well as the dark. After refining my craft as a ceramicist and I have always loved to draw, I have had the nearly impossible good fortune of blending my greatest passions to create these collections. I love what I do and I couldn’t be happier that others love it too. Perhaps, in my work, you might reconnect with some of that youthful awe that’s in all of us and the world deserves a little more awe.” -Laura
