Laura Huston lives and works in North Norfolk. She throws on the wheel, sometimes joining pieces together, then applies a coloured slip. Once leatherhard she carves back into the slip to reveal the clay beneath, a process called 'sgraffito'. Most of the pots have a matt, stony glaze and are twice-fired in an electric kiln. Using various types of clay enables a difference in the final pieces, giving a range of quality from smooth and precise to rough and weathered, like worn stone.
Her work explores subtle variations of form, pattern and colour taking inspiration from pieces of antiquity as well as from everyday life.
Keeping within the bounds of functional pottery the clay can act as sculpture or canvas, often both, the pieces constantly evolving as she regularly reimagines and reworks her designs.
