Claudia Lau works at the intersection of craft and design. Her design practice is defined by an ongoing investigation into the boundaries of ceramic manipulation. Straddling both experimentation and the refined, she divides her practice and time between a studio practice in Melbourne and HOUSE EDITIONS, a ceramic design and production studio focusing on timelessness, relevance and beauty based in Jingdezhen, China. This cultural exchange is where she has developed a deeper connection with the tradition of ceramics and experimental production methods.
House Editions is a ceramic design and production studio offering select pieces of ‘the refined domestic’, both strong and fragile in their beauty. House Editions continues the porcelain tradition of Jingdezhen to construct a conversation between the preservation and the reinvention of classic motifs, building new relationships between the established and experimental. Their system uses traditional materials and techniques with an edge of contemporaneity, resulting in elevated everyday editions.
