Laurie Pollpeter Eskenazi has worked with clay for well over 25 years. As a little girl, she was fascinated with the items found on and in her grandmother's dresser, including old button boxes, crazy quilts, and hand-tatted lace. Inspiration comes from the traditional needlecraft made by women in the 19th and early 20th centuries. Her vibrant palette reflects the colors and textures encountered in her travels throughout France, Italy, Spain, and the rural Midwest. Using a combination of wheel throwing, coil, and slab techniques, Laurie transforms vintage designs into contemporary stoneware. The patterns are created by pressing antique lace into soft clay, building a link between her contemporary craft and the past. The intricate mosaics are hand-painted with skill and an artist's eye for color. Laurie is known for her mastery of glaze patterning and critical attention to detail. Her work possesses a feminine, playful touch that incorporates bits of nostalgia while speaking to contemporary sensibilities.
