Lauren Kearns Porcelain
Lauren Kearns is interested in creating objects that bring beauty and joy to daily life. She feels that creating objects in ways that have existed throughout time is vital and necessary. She also feels that one's life is enriched through the everyday use of handmade objects. These objects remind us of our connection to history and help us to appreciate the art of the handmade.
Lauren Kearns uses wheel-throwing and hand-building techniques to create her ceramic artwork. She works exclusively in porcelain and uses underglazes to create patterns, followed by a clear overglaze. She fires her work at a high temperature in an electric kiln.
Lauren Kearns received a BFA from the Kansas City Art Institute, where she studied with Ken Ferguson and Victor Babu. She continued her studies at the University of Oregon, where she studied with George Kokis and received an MFA. She also had a year-long residency at the Archie Bray Foundation.
