The natural world inspires and informs ceramic artist Lauren Blakey, resulting in a powerful recitation of nature and biology throughout her work.
I am seeking to create visual representations that convey the juxtapositions found in our natural world; ideas of growth and decay, strength and fragility. – Artist statement
The Toronto based artist sees her work as “particularized studies, dug up from the earth or sea. The objects feel like unearthed relics or remains; the surviving traces that speak of our past.”
