Julia S. Rasor’s Ceramic Sculpture Workshops
We have just completed my February ceramic figurative sculpture workshop and I am pleased to present some of the student’s and their finished masterpieces.
My next ceramic figure workshop is coming late April/early May, information below.
February 2016 Workshop
Students who completed sculpting and firing their figures, finished their pieces with a patina taught at my San Diego Artist Retreat studio.
Here are some of the students and their finished sculptures.
Very remarkably, for some, this was their first figurative sculpture. Students chose a variety of subjects including torsos, a bust, a full figurative sculpture and and applied a nice variety of patinas.
The workshop was held at the Fallbrook School of the Arts, Ceramic Studio, 310 East Alvarado Street, Fallbrook, CA 92028.
The instructor’s sculpture can be seen at RasorsSculptures.com. As background, Julia has a number of awards for her works including First Place in Ceramics at the San Diego County Fair, Del Mar, Fine Art Exhibit (4th largest fair in North America) and her life-size sculptures are presently on exhibit at the San Diego Botanic Garden, Encinitas, the Fallbrook Public Library, and at The Studio Door Gallery in Northpark.
Next Ceramic Figurative Workshop
My next ceramic sculpture workshop at the Fallbrook School of the Arts will be 3 Saturdays late April/early May from 9:30am to 1:00pm. Stay tuned for dates.
If you must miss one of the three classes or if your piece is not finished at the end of the workshop, a make up class is available at the San Diego Artist Retreat, the instructor’s mountaintop avocado ranch studio in Fallbrook, at no additional charge.
This workshop will cover:
- Proportion, balance, movement, emotion, surface
- Technical methods
- Tool use
- Sculpture critique
- Firings included
- Patina instruction at the instructor’s San Diego Artist Retreat
To register call the school 760-728-6383, the class will be posted soon on their website.
Clay and tools are available in class. Call Julia at 408-395-3335 for questions.
It has been my experience that sculpture produced in the presence of other sculptors is of higher quality and the creative experience is more gratifying. I would love to have you join us!
