Laura Murphy Ceramics
Laura Murphy is a ceramic designer/maker based in Birmingham. She creates delicate and translucent parian (porcelain) vessels inspired by light, arboreal forms and the organic structure of a petal.
The work consists of duotone vessel forms with a crisp and contemporary feel, alongside non-functional pieces using the intricate latticework of a hydrangea petal’s structure to create unique variations on the same original. The hydrangeas use an original technique combining laser-cut paper and handcrafted layered clay. The vessels are made using coloured clays. All designs take root from original photographs taken by Laura and evolve into something organic and tactile.
