Lauren Eastman Fowler was born in Ohio and raised throughout the Midwest. She earned her BFA from Bowling Green State University, her MFA from the Rhode Island School of Design, and spent ten years as a Fine Art teacher before moving back to northern Ohio in 2017. Lauren currently lives and maintains a studio in Perrysburg, Ohio.

Lauren explores intricate natural forms in glass, drawing influence from her family’s rich history of makers. She incorporates the simple, repetitive patterns of her grandparents prized Dahlias into her elaborate vessel structures. Lauren is constantly experimenting with new and innovative techniques to push the scale and complexity of her work.

Lauren's work is currently represented by the Sherrie Gallerie in Columbus, the Sandra Ainsley Gallery in Toronto, and Echt Gallery in Chicago.
