CERAMICIST

Laura Huston was born in North Norfolk in 1981. After working in film set design she began studying pottery at various courses in London. Moving back to Norfolk in 2012 she set up a studio and has concentrated on making functional stoneware. This provides her with the boundaries she feels she needs to explore form, pattern and colour, as she reimagines and reworks her designs from day to day. She throws on the wheel, sometimes joining pieces together to create interesting shapes, then applies slips. Once leatherhard she often carves back into the slip to reveal the clay beneath, a process called ‘sgraffito’. Most of the pots have a matt, stony glaze and are twice-fired in an electric kiln
