Lora Rust

Lora Rust is a studio potter and pottery instructor in Atlanta, Ga., selling her work at her studio and local and national art sales, exhibits and galleries. Since completing the 2-year pottery assistantship program at the Callanwolde Fine Arts Center in 2008, Lora shares her love of working in clay, teaching beginning and intermediate pottery classes at Callanwolde, including occasional focus on the soda firing process. She also teaches hands on and demonstration workshops regionally. Lora creates heirloom quality porcelain table and serve ware, fired to cone 6 oxidation as well as salt and soda fired when available.


Lora’s Artist Statement:

“As a ceramic artist my goal is to bring a touch of artistry and elegance to the kitchen, dinner table or anywhere in the home. Working in porcelain, my stylized technique is a unique process of striking and moving the clay with handmade wooden tools.  No clay is added, removed or carved away to create the textures.  The designs and patterns found in Gothic Architecture mixed with the fluidity of the Art Nouveau period are strong influences for my work. Inspiration from fashion design helps capture a certain movement to the texture on the form. My hope is to create forms with a lush and fluid texture that beg to be touched.”
