Laura Richards graduated with a B.F.A. from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2003 where she concentrated on the study of glass. Her glass sculptures, which are often combined with digital prints, capture the natural free flowing forms of this medium. This series of work explores the daily factors, which together, shape who we are as individuals. She is influenced by the power of color, light, time and space because of their ability to affect emotions. These factors are not only evident but play a large role in her series.
