About Laurie Shaman

Laurie Shaman makes tabletop and wall pieces in porcelain or stoneware using slab-built techniques, with an eye on developing shapes and contours that best provide the surface for her hand drawn imagery. These forms become a canvas for depicting scenes that combine her interests in travel, art history and the natural world.

The vases, vessels, and wall pieces she makes evolved naturally over time from a strong foundation producing utilitarian pottery, as well as having an ongoing practice of creating works on paper with a variety of drawing techniques. These once separate pursuits have been the basis of her ceramic work, and combined, produce Laurie’s greatest satisfaction: merging a painted surface to three-dimensional form.
