Saltwater Ceramics are created by C. Laura Irmis. Her work is inspired by
her environment of beaches and the waterways in Florida.
STATEMENT: With my work comes passion about our environment. My work is
dramatically influenced by the Gulf of Mexico and her islands. The shapes,
textures and colors show this inescapable environmental influence.
I handpick my tools, shells and driftwood from Florida beaches and Egmont
Key, a wildlife refuge. It is the relationship between the tools, shapes
and colors that I hope to enlighten viewers with
environmental awareness needed to for the health and future of Mother
Nature. Blue and green glazes are typically used to continue the dialogue.
