Lora Rust

We are delighted to have the renowned Lora Rust present for us!

Since 2008, Lora Rust has been a studio potter and pottery instructor in Atlanta, Georgia, selling her work at local and regional art sales, exhibits and galleries. Sharing her love of working in clay, Lora teaches beginning and intermediate pottery classes at the Callanwolde Fine Arts Center with a concentration on the soda firing process. She also teaches hands-on and demonstration workshops regionally. Lora creates heirloom quality porcelain tableware and serving pieces, which are thrown, altered and textured.

In this Zoom presentation Lora will demonstrate her signature technique of “pushing the clay” on a variety of forms, using her personally designed tools. She will explore composition, pattern, and design, discussing the relationship of surface texture to the form. She will also demonstrate glazing and finishing techniques and discuss firing methods to maximize surface texture.
