Lora will throw a variety of forms, altering, assembling and decorating the pieces using her signature technique and patterns on the clay surface. Students will make some of their own texture tools and explore ideas about how the surface texture affects the form.


Lora will work mostly with soft “leather hard” pieces, but some glazing and finishing techniques will also be discussed and demonstrated. Participants will need to bring a variety of forms in leather hard state.
