New Developments , New Studio, New Family Business -Laverick and Son
In recent years, I have made bodies of work either using translucent white porcelain or coloured porcelain, mainly black. But I was not able to work in both mediums simultaneously as my small studio would not allow for this and would lead to cross contamination. I love the different qualities the different bodies bring to my work so when I moved to a large studio in 2019, it meant I had room for separate, dedicated spaces and this has given me more freedom to further develop my work.
I have been exploring a more graphic style of surface decoration and, as always, I have been enjoying playing with and re-arranging colours, lines and shapes to create what I hope, is work which is surprising, playful and provocative.
The move to new studio which is on a working dairy farm in the beautiful Staffordshire Moorlands has also allowed me to work in a more sustainable way. The power for the barn is generated by a combination of solar panels, wind turbine and bio-mass fuels.
Laverick and Son
I share the barn with one of my sons, Jack, and together, we have developed range of contemporary porcelain lighting. See more at www.laverickandson.co.uk.
We are very excited to announce that some of our lighting range is also now available from the Tate Modern Edit, in the museum shop and online. We can work on a bespoke basis to produce customised and individual lighting for the home.
