Dedicated to the investigations of ceramics, Lauren Skelly Bailey explores surface, form and the layering of histories in her sculptures. Bailey draws from nature, industrial objects and objects tooled by man to assemble installations, and sculptures. In 2015, Lauren received her Master of Fine Arts degree from Rhode Island School of Design with a concentration in Ceramics. Skelly studied at Adelphi University, from 2008-2014 where she received her Bachelor of Fine Arts and Master of Arts degrees. Lauren received the Thomas McNulty Award for Excellence in Sculpture in May 2012. Skelly has attended a variety of workshops and apprentice opportunities throughout the United States and in Italy.
Recently at the Museum of Arts & Design in Manhattan, Bailey was an Artist in Residence in their winter Artist Studios Residency Program. Bailey
