Laura Bird is a London based potter and illustrator mainly producing functional ware as well as decorative vessels and vases. All the pieces are created exclusively by the artist with each one being made by hand and hand painted so no two are ever the same. The style is always very playful, often with the use of bright colours and usually featuring an array of interesting characters.
There is a strong emphasis on decoration and the pieces tell a story through the illustrations and patterns used. The whole range is created from stoneware clay making everything extremely durable for daily use and even when unglazed they have the ability to hold water. The philosophy of the work is to produce ceramics that can be used in every day life which contain an element of fun as well as being little pieces of art. Hopefully bringing a smile to someone’s face every time they are used.
You can shop their collections and meet them alongside 70 other independent designers and makers at our next event at Shoreditch town hall.
