Artist bio: New York based artist, Jeffrey Loura, creates organic, elemental vessels. Jeffrey moved to New York in 1996 to earn his BFA at Parsons School of Design, where he studied Illustration. He began throwing ceramics five years later in 2001. These atmospheric hand-thrown ceramics are aesthetically modern and Primitive. The focus of the work is the idea of familiarity and opposing concepts; individualism vs community; female vs male; life vs death. These quiet, peaceful forms are the result.
