Elated that I was invited to demo in the process room at NCECA 2015 in Rhode Island!

Process: Adding Volume and Movement to Static Forms with Texture. By Robert Lawarre.
Viewers will be encouraged to explore surface texture/decoration and its relationship to form. The demo will cover "stretching" the idea of soft slab building vessel forms with armatures and free form. Alteration to these forms will be done with multiple techniques and will incorporate a variety of embellishment methods including impressing with custom texture tools, pinch, coil, sprigging and molding. Attendees can look forward to walking away from this workshop with new skills for building and decorating forms, a stronger ability to explore ideas, and the knowledge to create their own tools.
