About Lora Rust
As a ceramic artist, my goal is to bring a touch of artistry and elegance anywhere in the home.
Working in porcelain, my stylized technique is a unique process of striking and moving clay with personally designed tools, creating lush and fluid surfaces that beg to be touched.
Designs and patterns found in Gothic Architecture mixed with the fluidity of Art Nouveau are strong influences for my patterns. Inspiration from textile and fabric design provides movement to the texture on the form.
My work is made in my studio in Atlanta, GA and fired in my soda kiln in Blue Ridge, GA.
Sodium vapors glaze the exterior of each vessel, interacting and uniquely highlighting the form and surface.
