Hi, I’m Lindsey Schneider and it’s nice of you to stop by. LBP is a line of handmade ceramic home objects, named after a frightful encounter with a black bear in a wilderness area of West Virginia, which I slept through.
When I think about bears, I always imagine them as fiercely strong and independent creatures of the forest, who contrastingly live off soft fruit and honey. I try to create pieces that play with this blend of softness and sharpness, using patterned surfaces, craters, and spikes built out of hardened soft clay.
Where I’m at.
I live and work in Red Hook, Brooklyn, an industrial neighborhood at the water’s edge that’s littered with street art, big roll-top gates on boxy warehouses, and uneven cobblestones. It’s a small fishing village at the end of the universe, tucked right inside the madness of New York City.
