Lauren Francescone is a designer and ceramicist. Her work considers beauty, sensuality, and decoration in forms made strange through their liberation from function. She experiments with color and with the tactile aspects of clay bodies and glazes, which invite touch and evoke its pleasures. The principles of architecture and design provide a framework for her approach.

Lauren has worked professionally as an independent designer in New York City and abroad for over ten years. In 2019 she launched ︎︎︎Temperatures, an occasional publication about contemporary ceramics. She holds a BS from the University of Virginia School of Architecture and an MFA from the Yale School of Art.

Please get in touch if you are interested in working together on a custom project, large or small.
