Leigh Taylor Mickelson

Renowned local artist, Leigh Taylor Mickelson, will present a demo on: Botanical Abstractions: Exploring the Organic Object at HRP's next Zoom meeting on Thursday, November 12th at 7:20pm. Nature repeats itself – in minute and simple ways as well as grand and complex ways. Leigh will share how she looks to natural forms as inspiration for her personal expression. Over the course of the hour, she will share how she uses several hand building methods, including pinching, coil and soft slab construction, extruding or even throwing, to create simple organic forms for the wall or table. We will talk about surface, and discuss the numerous ways one can use texture and color to take an organic object beyond the realms of our imagination. If time allows, she will share her various installation methods, and talk about how to construct large scale sculptures using multiples.
