About the company:
Lucky NOLA is handcrafted ceramic wall hangings, ornaments, tags, and other functional home decor by Raegan Robinson.
The pieces I have been creating combine my love of printmaking, collage and ceramics to create the final product.
I am drawn to textures and layers you explore over time. I believe that is how something that can seem so simple at first glance can continue to catch our attention as we pass them.
I love clay. Though I work with and enjoy may different mediums, I must say clay always calls me back. It is so honest. It records every mark, every movement.
About the artist:
Many people know me as an assemblage and mixed media artist and are surprised to see the other work I do, whether it be painting or ceramics, but since hurricane Katrina I have changed paths (partly out of necessity, partly out of simply changing directions) and am focusing more on clay.
Being a New Orleanian, comes through in my work. The overlapping textures of the city continue to inspire me. Growing up in New Orleans, I became accustomed to the sights and sounds of the city but as I grew older, I began notice the nuances it has. There is something about here that embraces and holds on to the old while reveling in the new. This creates the layers or textures within our lives we often take for granted. My pieces draw upon that layering. The words, the sounds, and the thoughts surface in the pieces through repetition of form, text, numbers, letters and symbols. Because of this, I love textures and layers you explore over time. I believe that that is how something that can seem so simple at first glance can continue to catch our attention as we pass them. Since I am an assemblage artist as well, I find myself altering, rearranging, reordering and reinterpreting images to tell a story or convey an idea. From here I dissect parts and create the form.
