Lauren Hunt: Celebrity Cruise Scholarship Recipient
Drawn to functional forms more than abstract designs, and inspired by makers such as Boyd Sugiki and The Studio's own resident artist Bill Gudenrath, Lauren Hunt gets motivation from her surroundings at The Studio. The skill of these masters is "what you strive for," and Lauren listed skill building among her main goals for taking the class. "I hope I have a better understanding of how to make these basic forms. I hope I can utilize it in my own time whenever I want to start my own work. I can always reference back to Boyd's class and always have my notes with me."
