Artist of the Day: Laura B. Cooper

Last month when I was posting about some great Etsy finds I posted some of the work of today's artist, Laura B. Cooper. You can see that post here. I loved the subtlety of her work, how a minimalist approach to decoration really worked to highten the reading of her forms and textures. So it's with pleasure that I post some new pieces of hers today. Enjoy!



In her words:

"My name is Laura B. Cooper and I am a ceramic artist based out of Athens, Georgia, where I live with my husband and daughter.

The work I am currently focusing on deals mainly with gestural interpretations of various types of vessels. I am interested in texture, repetition, subtleties, and cadence that can be found in forms. I also find that irregularities which may disrupt the form and throw the viewer off a bit to be very fascinating."


Make sure to stop by her Etsy shop for more images and to purchase her work.

Aaron, your new take with this new porcelain is a stunner. Perfect for a fine Scotch, no?
