2839 Port Austin Road
A lifelong painter and graphic artist, Laurie began experimenting with clay in 2000 and was immediately hooked on the medium. Her work is primarily functional ceramics, focusing on stoneware decorated in her own glazes. “The idea of a piece of art being admired AND used on a daily basis is just so appealing. The earliest forms of art included vessels for daily use as well as high ceremony. When I have my morning coffee in a hand made mug, the day just starts out right!”
Laurie is also a founding partner in Mermaid’s Cove in Port Austin, a gallery and gift shop that features only Michigan and local artists and artisans!
Laurie will be demonstrating on the pottery wheel throughout both days. If you would like to get your hands dirty, you are welcome give the wheel a try! This year Laurie will have some secret new items for the kitchen!
