She will explore ideas about design, pattern and composition, discussing the relationship of surface texture to the form. She will demonstrate a variety of 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.
Using Lora's signature tools, student will learn and practice her technique on sample tiles and their own leather-hard thrown or hand-built pieces. Specialty tool kits will be available for purchase.
