Laura Andreson

Today a post on renowned potter Laura Andreson. Andreson established the ceramics department at UCLA in 1934 and taught there until her retirement in 1970. Thats a lot of pots.
She was one of the first California studio potters to experiment and explore porcelain, which up to 1950 was mostly used in commercial products. She would become known as a leading West Coast authority on porcelain.
