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.

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.
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.
