Lauren Bausch is a born and raised Columbus native, with a rich Columbus family heritage. She received her Bachelor's Degree in Studio Art from Columbus State University and is currently living in Centerville, GA.
As a child, she spent numerous hours writing books and poems complete with illustrations. When she wasn't busy creating crayon masterpieces, she was making mud-pies, hence her later interest in ceramics.
Although pottery and sculptural ceramics are a more recent passion, she has always been an avid painter. Says Bausch of ceramics, “Ever since I drank coffee from the first cup I ever made, I was hooked on pottery.” After years of ceramics explorations, Bausch has developed a style that reflects the rugged character of traditional Georgia folk pottery with the refinement of fine art training.
