Sigfús Designs

Lauren Valenzuela is the owner and maker of Sigfús Designs. A Tucson native, Lauren has a long history of creating art and reveling in the beauty and possibility in the Sonoran Desert

Founded in 2018, Sigfús Designs is a little bit desert, a little bit retro, and a whole lot rock and roll. A family name, “Sigfús,” traces back to Lauren’s Icelandic roots, paying homage to her lineage. Lauren began Sigfús working with the medium of polymer clay and continues to expand her craft, most recently incorporating resin, wood, lucite, wire, and other elements in her work. Chalk it up to her restaurant background and foodie habits, but turmeric, black pepper, and dried herbs have a way of making it into her clay designs, creating unique textures, pigment, and pop
