Laura Tyler - Sticks and Stones
Laura Tyler, creator of Sticks and Stones Ceramics, is a Kansas City artist who is influenced by the desire to collect nature and to bring it into domestic spaces. Laura grew up fascinated by her grandmother’s home collections, taxidermy covered walls, and plant filled rooms. Now, as an artist, she finds influence from her grandmother’s home collections of nature. Laura collects animal bones, arrowheads, shells, and rocks that act as references for her work. These collections are manifested through Sticks and Stones’ sculpted clay skull mounts, dinnerware sets, and rock-like planters. She strives to continuously find ways to bring Midwest flora and fauna into her ceramic work.
