Laurie Pollpeter Eskenazi has worked with clay for over 25 years. As a little girl, she was fascinated with the items found on and in her Grandmother’s dresser. It was filled with old button boxes, crazy quilts, and hand tatted lace. Laurie is a graduate of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Her pottery is inspired by the traditional needle crafts made by women in the 19th and early 20th century. Using a combination of wheel throwing, coil, and slab techniques she transforms vintage designs into contemporary stoneware. The work is somewhat spontaneous.
