I grew up drawing and making, and it is a big part of my life.
I have always enjoyed experimenting with different materials and fell in love with the versatility of clay. The possibility to create anything I design fulfills my childhood dream of being an inventor.
My name is Laura Matikatie, as an artist, designer, and maker I focus on elegance, contrast, form, and tactility.
I have been specializing in handmade ceramics for seven years and my love for wheel throwing and glaze chemistry make up the majority of the work you will find me creating today.
My formal educational years have been completed in Co. Laois, Abbeyleix FEC in Art, Craft & Design. My BA of Honours in Limerick School of Art and Design in Ceramic Design. A very special semester on Erasmus in Vilnius Academy of Arts, Lithuania. And most recently in the School of Excellence in Ceramic Skills & Design, Thomastown, Co. Kilkenny.
My goal as a creator is to deliver original and unique art. To connect you to the specialness of handmade and to give you visual stimulus and sensory play through tactile, contemporary multidimensional forms.
Please consider that each individual piece of ceramics is handmade and may slightly differ in colour and size from the images and description.
I use naturally occurring raw materials to create the work on the wheel and make my own glazes. Although every effort has been made to eradicate ‘imperfections’ during the testing and making process, some variations do occur due to the materials, process and the human element.
