Collection: Laurie Shaman

Chicago, IL

Laurie Shaman is a ceramist in Chicago who handbuilds vessels, tiles, and wall pieces in porcelain. She has maintained a studio practice for over 40 years, created a Chicago Public Art tile mural, and has held arts administration positions at the Art Institute of Chicago and Lillstreet Art Center. Her work features painted, incised, or carved imagery that features varying combinations of animals, birds, landscapes, and figures. It is hoped that the pieces evoke a combination of classical and contemporary sensibilities in shape and surface quality.
