Lauren Young (USA)

Artist Statement by Lauren Young (*1989), who received her BFA in Ceramics at University of Hartford Art School in 2012:

»I mainly focus on mold making and slip casting in my work using wooden prototypes I have designed to create the sharp edges and wood grain patterns. Recently I have incorporated wheel thrown bodies with slip cast elements to create more of a contrast in my work. All my work is high fire porcelain and stoneware and all of it is wood fired bringing the ashy and flashing effects. I find wood firing both softens the hard edges of my work and also highlights the lines.«
