'These recent works have been the outcome of my explorations of my new surroundings in the Victorian Goldfields and I have used materials from various disused mining sites and processed them to use as oxides, slips and glazes, as well as incorporating rocks and clay into the clay body. The making of this new work has required a deeper engagement, not only with my surroundings but also with my own making practice.’ - Laura Veleff
LAURA VELEFF has been making ceramic work for her label LEAF AND THREAD for the past 9 years. Laura works predominantly on the wheel and creates pieces that are imbued with her deep respect and love for natural materials.
Since moving from Melbourne to the Central Victorian Goldfields, Laura's more recent work tells the story of the complex narrative and history of her new surroundings, often incorporating materials she gathers from the environment.
