Clay by Laura
Laura’s journey to full-time clay artist began at a kid’s class at the Corcoran School of Art when she was fourteen. However ceramics remained a background hobby as she pursued a career in communications. Working for an audio-visual production company in Washington, DC, Laura produced, recorded and engineered several nationally syndicated radio shows covering politics and wine. She wrote marketing and ad copy for a variety of clients and was later recruited to develop and manage an in-house marketing department for a national computer company. Only in the last decade did her passion for clay turn into a professional second act. Her sales took off at co-op art gallery in Bluffton, SC she co-founded. While sales, and the success of her Clay by Laura blog are important measures of success, her biggest reward is knowing that her pieces make people happy!
