Lana Filippone

Recipient of the Tuckers Pottery Supplies Ltd. Clay Supply Grant

Through whimsical narrative, Lana Filippone strives to create a language that allows magic to exist in our everyday lives. This language harkens back to places that are familiar yet subversive of her material.  

Her humorous nostalgia becomes physical daydreams in clay. These daydreams are manifested from big ideas with light qualities - including themes of transience in shared Human experience, ideas about forbearance and a light poking fun at the human condition. By creating a broad range of work, this language is accessed by many and in different places in our lives. The symbolic touchstones are mementos of an ever growing allegory.
