Sculpture Workshop – San Diego Artist Retreat – August 2018

Sculpture Workshop

My next sculpture workshop will be teaching air-dry clay sculpture with the incorporation of found objects.  It will take place at my San Diego Artist Retreat air-conditioned studio in Fallbrook the first two weekends in August.  A number of spaces are already taken.

Sculpture Medium – Air-Dry Clay

Air-dry clay does not require kiln firing, is light weight, and allows a more versatile design as any material e.g., wood, plastic, metal, paper, etc. can be incorporated and an internal wire armature allows the sculpture to be easily posed in any configuration and wired to various objects or hung. It can also be reworked once dry.

I presently have a sculpture with air-dry clay at the San Diego Botanic Garden for 2018-2019.

I sold four air dry clay sculptures at the last Sculptural Objects Functional Art and Design (SOFA) show in Chicago.

Instructor’s Background

As a medical device inventor and entrepreneur (inventing the tools that physicians use, www.MedicalDevice.com), Julia S. Rasor explores materials and often uses found artifacts in her sculpture that will both, convey topics she is passionate about and preserve time, resulting in a unique, expressive body of work (www.FineArtSculpt.com).

Julia merged her art and science careers – it not uncommon to see her fearlessly experiment with a wide range of media and subjects resulting in sculptures that emanate both dark and light emotion – Yin and the Yang.  Her background is published in

The Greater Fallbrook Area Sourcebook 2016 feature: pages 56-59.

Fine Art Sculptor Julia S. Rasor Fallbrook, CA
Sculptor, Inventor, Entrepreneur, Julia S.Rasor

Her sculpture series include world events (The Recession and Modernism), the afterlife (Spirits), high fashion (Haute Couture, Avante-Garde), nudes, dancers, warriors, guardians, and strange departures into the unusual (FractAliens, a fractured alien).

Her works can be seen at the San Diego Botanic Garden and other public venues and galleries.  Julia founded the San Diego Artist Retreat in Fallbrook, an art immersion experience, where she holds workshops and studio/gallery tours.

Air-Dry Clay with Found Objects – Sculpture Workshop at San Diego Artist Retreat – Abstract Figure Example

Air-Dry Clay – Sculpture Example #3

Abstract Figure Sculpture

Air-dry clay works well for abstract figures – unlike fired water-based clay, an internal wire armature can be permanently incorporated.  As an example, see my sculpture “Shadow Spirit” below – purchased by a collector at last year’s Open Studios San Diego run by The Studio Door gallery.

As another example, “Willow Spirit”, curated by Sparks Gallery owner for exhibition in the PHYSIQUE show.  Pictures of the sculpture detail show the metallic patina capabilities of the material.

Air-Dry Clay with Found Objects – Sculpture Workshop at San Diego Artist Retreat – Wall Sculpture Example

Air-Dry Clay – Sculpture Example #2

Wall Sculpture

Air-dry clay works well for wall sculpture as it is lightweight and can be easily wired in place on a canvas or other object.  As an example, my pair “Surf Goddess” and “Sun Goddess, show the Yin and Yang of surf and sun, cool and warm, realism and abstraction – these wall sculptures were purchased via auction by a collector.

Being able to incorporate a variety of materials in a sculpture is a feature I particularly like about air-dry clay.  In my travels I collect interesting twisted roots, textured dry desert branches, shells, etc. which I incorporate into sculptures such as in my Spirit Series.

I also attach air-dry sculptures onto found object bases such as with my Willow Spirit sculpture and Rock Climber sculptures.

Making sculpture in this way is very personal and specific to the artist – it preserves a history important to them via their collected artifacts into a piece of art – a heritage and memories that can be passed down to family members.  Constructing the sculpture in the form of a figure captures the artist’s emotion associated with the gathered objects and projects it into the piece.

Students will incorporate their own found object artifacts into a one-of-a-kind figurative sculpture.  All experience levels are welcome.  Instruction is tailored to individual goals.

Found Object Sculpture Workshop June 2016

Found Object Sculpture Workshop

I have been asked to have my next workshop be teaching found object sculpture.  It will take place at my San Diego Artist Retreat studio in Fallbrook.  Students will incorporate their own found object artifacts into a one-of-a-kind figurative sculpture.  Once the workshop is full, additional students will be placed on the cancellation list and list for next class that will be held on Fridays or Saturdays.

This method of sculpture is one I particularly like – when I repaired and remodeled my ranch I kept pieces of weathered steel mesh and rusty worn hardware and incorporated them into a figurative sculpture I mounted on an avocado root from my grove thus creating the sculpture “At the Apex” that preserves the history of my homestead.

All experience levels are welcome.  Instruction is tailored to individual goals.

Instructor: Julia S. Rasor, Sculptor

Location: San Diego Artist Retreat, De Luz Heights area of Fallbrook (directions provided to registered students)

Dates: Coming late June 2016

Time: 9:30am – 1:00pm

Materials: Basic materials are provided and large tools loaned.

Cost: $210

Registration: Email Julia at jsrasor@gmail.com to receive a Registration Form.  Receipt of a completed form and payment check will reserve your place in the workshop.  Workshop Instructions will then be emailed to you.  This will be a fairly small group of 8-10 students for maximum one-on-one interaction.  Call Julia if you have any questions at 408-395-3335.

Instructor’s Background

Julia has a number of awards for her works including two Third Places in Recycled Materials with her Recession Series sculptures “Industrial Plummet” and Industrial Slowdown” and a First Place in Ceramics at the San Diego County Fair, Del Mar, Fine Art Exhibit (4th largest fair in North America).

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!

San Diego Artist Retreat

An Art Immersion Experience

The workshop will be held at the newly founded San Diego Artist Retreat, the instructor’s mountaintop avocado ranch studio and gallery in the De Luz Heights area of Fallbrook.

The San Diego Artist Retreat setting is a spectacular rural mountaintop avocado ranch.  Panoramic views, sunshine and quiet provide an experience that sparks and fosters personal creativity and provides for reflection and refinement of artistic work.  Artists collaborate and receive facilitation to plan and produce art that inspires and excites imaginations and strives for excellence.

Julia S. Rasor – Art Challenge – Spirit Sculpture – Day 2

Art Challenge – Day 2

My Spirit Series sculpture is shown today for the 5/5/5 art challenge which consists of:

5 artworks/ over 5 days/ nominating another artist each day

My nominations:

Day 1 – Accomplished sculptor, Gilda Bronzé.  Her work is wonderfully complicated and far reaching.

Day 2 – Manuelita Brown, creates eclectic and authentically personal bronze figurative and portrait sculpture.


Spirit Series Sculpture – Day 2

For Day 2, I am sharing the most recent work from my Spirit Series “Tethered Spirit”.  This sculpture represents a phase of a spirit’s passage where it is rising up but grounded by man made industrial wreckage – still tethered to the past.

Spirit Series, Fine Art Sculpture, Tethered Spirit, Julia S. Rasor, front

The sculpture is ceramic mounted on a found broken aluminum framework in a manner that is well balanced but creates tension.
