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.
Her stylized technique is a process of striking and moving the clay with handmade wooden tools. No clay is added, removed or carved away. The designs and patterns found in Gothic Architecture mixed with the fluidity of the Art Nouveau period are strong influences for her work. Inspiration from fashion design helps capture a certain movement of the texture on the form. Her hope is to create forms with a lush and fluid texture that beg to be touched.
