One of the rising stars of ceramic sculpture with her delicate ceramic porcelain vessels, recent press coverage of Lauren Nauman’s work has been included the Daily Telegraph, The Evening Standard, House and Garden, the cover of Ceramic Review, to name but a few.”My work explores the boundaries within clay through experimental processes. I start with the industrial method of plaster moulds and slip-casting; however, I don’t always use these in traditional ways. With my current project Lines, I use metal as an aesthetic reference and material contrast. An additive method is used to create pieces with minimal amounts of clay. This body of work became an engaging display of how clay moves in the kiln. The suggestions of vessels start out as straight cages of wet clay and through the power of the kilns heat and the pyroplasticity of the clay, they move like fabric to evolve into a wire-like sculpture that still holds the materiality of porcelain. Due to this process, the final form of each piece stems from minute details in the making, but mostly depends on chance.”
