The Layered Surface with Renee LoPresti
April 13 - April 14
Renee LoPresti will focus on developing surface composition by layering underglazes and glaze directly onto leatherhard clay. Custom paper and reusable die-cut vinyl stencils will be used to create layered patterns, shapes, and detailed imagery. The techniques and materials used during this workshop have the flexibility to be fired to a range of temperatures and atmospheres.
Renee was born and raised in Northwestern New Jersey. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University and currently works as a studio potter in residence at Eye of the Dog Art Center in San Marcos, TX.
She had the honor of being named one of Ceramics Monthly’s Emerging Artists in 2017. She is currently showing her work through numerous juried and invitational exhibitions throughout the country.
