Biography

Leonora lives and works in London. She graduated from Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in 2011 with a First Class Honours Degree in Ceramic Design. She uses porcelain paper clay; dipping combustible into porcelain slip, hand modeling, cutting and then constructing.
“As the time goes I have been collecting vintage laces and imprinting them into porcelain to preserve the beauty and the fine work once devoted to creating each one of them. The collection of the laces starts from 1920s. Each tea light holder is named after a friend that was present when I got the lace or has given me a piece of the lace. For example Rosie is a piece of lace from my friend’s mum 1950s wedding dress.”
