When Laura Peery discovered clay it was the medium's ability to mimic fabric that pulled her in. Her porcelain sculptural teapots are composed and assembled as if stitched from a dressmaker's pattern. Layered color gives the surfaces a soft, vintage patina. No two are alike. Peery alters each piece until it is, to her eye, exactly the right size,shape and color.
Laura Peery received an MFA from George Washington University. She has shown her work across the USA as well as in Taiwan and Canada. The Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington, DC, The Fuller Museum of Craft, Brockton, MA and The Cameron Art Museum, Wilmington, NC all have her work in their collections. She is a new member of the Southern Highland Craft Guild.
