When Laura Peery discovered clay it was the medium's ability to mimic fabric that pulled her in. Her porcelain sculptural teapots, fanciful figurative sculptures, vases and drinking vessels are composed and assembled as if 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.
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.
See Peery's work in Asheville at Odyssey Co Op Gallery, The Omni Grove Park Inn at at the Southern Highland Guild shows. You can also visit by appointment at her studio, purchase work from The Artful Home or by contacting her directly through this website.
