Laura Schlesinger’s pottery blends art with function. In her body of work evolving over three decades, no two pieces are exactly alike, yet her thematic designs and vibrant compositions are uniquely her own. While Laura initially studied painting, her designs focus on bringing art into the hands of people for everyday use; in this enlivened functionality, each piece takes on a life of its own. All work is individually designed, hand-thrown and painted. Laura works from her studio in Southwestern Pennsylvania.
