Laima Grigone was born in Latvia and attended Bauska Art School. After gaining Diploma in Photography she moved to UK to do Foundation Degree in Art and Design at the Oxford Brookes University. She received a degree in Contemporary Crafts from Falmouth University in 2013 where she gained experience in working with clay, wood, metal and glass. During her studies her work was not bound to one format – ranging from mixed-media installations to light design. Inspired by the writings of Suzie Gablik and Ellen Dissanayake, she was looking for a way to include art in the everyday life and decided to look into pottery. She became an apprentice to the ceramic master Ingrīda Žagata for the summer of 2012. Since then her main passion has been ceramics. In 2013 she received ELFLA funding and set up a studio in Rundāle creating functional tableware.
