Lawrence Epps

Lawrence Epps is a ceramic artist, reflecting on England’s considerable industrial ceramic heritage to draw attention to a mass-produced production-line lifestyle of contemporary society.

Epps is interested in how value is ascribed in such a society and placed on objects relative to chance and the possibility of gain regardless of what is already possessed. Therefore his work exploits this, offering people the opportunity to revel in what they are offered, something beautiful and handcrafted, or to gamble this away on the lesser chance of gaining more.

Lawrence Epps studied ceramics at the University of Westminster.
