Lana is a resident artist at Harbourfront Centre’s ceramic studio. She received her honors degree from Queen’s University and is Sheridan College graduate in the Craft and Design program, majoring in Ceramics.
Departing from a focus heavily influenced by her childhood on the shores of natural and historic Georgian Bay – Lana creates physical daydreams in clay about finding freedom and adaptation within the predictable chaos of city life. Lana transposes humorous nostalgia into to her work. These daydreams are manifest from big ideas yet have light qualities, not dissimilar to knock-knock jokes.
PROJECT STATEMENT | These whimsical Cob Holders take inspiration from the summer tradition of eating out-of-doors. Whether enjoying a meal in cottage-country, the beach or a downtown patio – eating outside brings family, friends and neighbors together and makes it ok to play with our food! An icon of summer; corn-on-the-cob celebrates the peak of the season as it ushers in the next. These fanciful pieces bring delight to our shared natural kitchen.
Lana’s Triceratops & T-Rex cob holders are now available for pre-order!
