Lora Rust has an eye for elegance, fluidity and movement. Working in porcelain, her signature technique is a process of pushing the surface of the clay. She carefully textures each piece with her personally designed wooden tools, creating lush patterns with graceful, flowing lines. The designs and patterns found in Gothic Architecture mixed with the fluidity of the Art Nouveau period are strong influences in her work. Inspiration from textiles and fashion design provides movement to the texture on the form. She finishes each piece with beautiful glazes and captivating soda-fired color schemes that uniquely highlight the surface. Free and open to the public.
