Today while finishing out her residency, she collaborates as an artist with fashion brands and shops to create store displays and other customized pieces. Her delicate and imaginative florals are made with a variety of techniques including old fashioned crochet and knitting work and some freehand stitching with her machine (the only pieces not handmade) on a water soluble fabric which washes away leaving her with a hand drawn chain stitch to be molded into a dreamy bloom. An important part of Laurence's practice is experimentation and she is always looking for new techniques even in old ideas like lace making and crochet.
We booked Laurence for a meet up at her petit atelier to learn more about her processes and inspiration. It was a really amazing morning learning about the Atelier de Paris and their commitment to artists and their practice, and such a great opportunity to get inspired by Laurence and her jardin.
