Lauren Nauman is one of the rising stars of the ceramics world and describes her work as exploring the boundaries within clay through experimental processes. She starts with the industrial method of plaster moulds and slip-casting, but doesn’t always use these in traditional ways. With her current project Lines, she uses 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 kiln’s heat, they bending of the and 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. Recent press coverage of Lauren Nauman’s work has been included in the Daily Telegraph, The Evening Standard, House and Garden, How to Spend It magazine and the cover of Ceramic Review. The Nationalmuseum in Stockholm acquired a piece for its permanent collection in 2018.
