Ceramics by Laura Bird, a freelance illustrator and maker based in London, England, is comprised of primitive designs that recalls unearthed relics from ancient civilizations. Inspired by such past pottery designs, the creations appear to tell stories in playfully rudimentary ways. Full of beautiful objects, curiosities and ornaments, her designs can be decorative and practical.

At times, people might mistake the pieces in Ceramics by Laura Bird for the work of children. Yet it is this sense of imagination and innocence that will attract people to the works in the first place. Liv Siddell of Its Nice That wishfully writes, "If, in a few hundred years, whatever inhabits this earth digs up ancient relics to give them clues of our time, I hope that it’s not a fizzing, cracked pile of iPads and Lean Mean Grilling Machines, but Laura Bird’s pottery."
