Laney fell in love with clay at 18 years old. For many years, she would throw vessels on the wheel and slice them in half to make sure they were thin and even. She had to perfect the craft of traditional clay.
With that complete, her next move was to break all the hard-learned rules. Deconstruct the form, distort the shapes, and camouflage the surface with pattern and paint. Use provocative gestures. All finished in 24-carat gold.
Ultimately, the clay has transcended into narratives of women, opulence, and decadent nostalgia.
As well as all future mediums that came.
