i am an artist. i am a maker. i am a puppy cuddler.
i am laura wagner, and i am an artist, maker, and puppy cuddler (it's my official title;) i am a born and bred angeleno and am never happier than with the sun shinin' and the santa anas blowin'....except for when I'm in the shop, wherever that may be! i studied art and furniture design at san diego state university, and after graduating in 2010 I continued making and building as a retail display artist and sculptor's studio assistant. my adopted mantra "process over product" was ingrained in me while at colorado's anderson ranch arts center as a 2014 woodshop intern, and i most recently took that same mindset with me to the woodshop assistantship at yestermorrow design/build school in vermont.
i am now back in la, playing and experimenting with all types of materials--metal, ceramics, concrete, and paper, although wood definitely still holds a special place in my heart (alongside my golden retriever, penny and freaks and geeks reruns ;)
