One Day Workshop
With Larissa Warren
Participants in this 4 hour workshop will create a beautiful collection of unique sculptural and functional objects in fine, translucent porcelain. Forms will be created by hand and participants will be able to decorate their porcelain objects with piercing, etching, carving and coloured clay inlay.
All materials, equipment and firing are supplied along with a light refreshments and morning tea. This workshop is aimed at all skill levels, no prior skills or knowledge needed.
Fired collections of work will be ready to collect from the gallery 3 weeks after the workshop.
“Porcelain Sculpting” is presented In collaboration with KINDRED, our group show of Art Educators Gold Coast. (Further instruction will be provided as to how to fire and polish porcelain in a school kiln for art educators if they were to participate.)
Larissa Warren Biography
Gold Coast ceramist Larissa Warren has her own unique approach to clay. With a passion for traditional Japanese neriage (pattern) techniques, Larissa creates some engaging surfaces by combining translucent porcelain, colour and mixed textured clay.
Larissa designs and creates distinctive original artwork from her home studio, located in her almost-renovated fisherman’s hut at Runaway Bay. Having graduated from Griffith University in 2000 with a degree in Fine Art and another in Secondary Art Education, Larissa has spent 17 years teaching art, photography and ceramics.
She exhibits work frequently in art awards and several group shows around Australia and will be exhibiting with Left Bank Gallery in June and December.
This month, Larissa is a finalist in the Moreton Bay Art prize, the Rotary Art prize and was People’s Choice winner in last year’s Gold Coast International Ceramic Art Award. In June, L.A based Ann330 Gallery will be presenting Larissa’s work in America’s largest design Fair: Dwell on Design.
