Lines Jars and Dishes by Lauren Nauman
The Line of Beauty
Lauren Nauman is a ceramicist with an experimental bent. Her Lines series of vases, jars and dishes uses porcelain and brass in thin strips to create vessels which look rigid and fragile at the same time. The shapes are also intriguing: some look controlled and precise, others delightfully random; a beautiful exercise in contradictions.
Lauren Nauman is a graduate of the Royal College of Art (MA Ceramics & Glass) and the Lines Jars and Dishes are part of her graduation project.

We love the messy, organic feel of the flexible resin rings and bowls from Corsi as a contrast to the rigid structure of lines.
