Lora Rust enjoys sharing her knowledge and passion for clay with others. She offers a variety of workshop formats as either Demonstration or Hands On with lengths from one day to five days. Workshops are open to all levels of all clay workers including Throwers, Hand Builders and Sculptors.
Working in porcelain, Lora will throw a variety of forms, altering, assembling and decorating the pieces using her signature technique and patterns on the clay surface using handmade tools. She will explore ideas about design, pattern and composition, discussing the relationship of surface texture to the form. She will demonstrate some glazing and finishing techniques to maximize surface texture. In all versions of the workshops, students will be able to try out the unique texturing technique on a small sample slab, using some of Lora’s tools. Although the base forms will be thrown on the wheel, hand-builders are welcome and can enjoy learning the texturing process.
