Laura grew up in North Carolina and received her Bachelor’s Degree in Studio Art concentrating in Photography from Furman University in 2006. She learned to throw pottery in the hilltop town of Cortona, Italy and fell in love with it while living in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. She decided to pursue pottery and moved to Portland, Oregon to study in the ceramics program at the Oregon College of Art and Craft. She apprenticed under renowned potter Victoria Christen while establishing her own pottery business. She now lives in Asheville, NC where she works full-time in her studio. She loves clean and simple design and intends her pottery for everyday use.
