This 2-day hands on workshop will be open to all levels of all clay workers including Throwers, Hand Builders and Sculptors. Students will bring their own pieces in a soft leather hard state to practice surface decoration on. Working in porcelain, Lora will throw a variety of forms – altering, assembling and decorating the pieces using her signature technique and creating patterns on the clay surface using her personally designed tools. She will help students 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. Although Lora’s base forms will be thrown on the wheel, hand-builders are welcome and can enjoy learning the texturing process.
