L.G. T A L B O T
As an undergraduate Lora studied ceramic sculpture and continued to express herself through clay for many years. She threw and hand built vessels but desired more color, depth on the surface of her sculpture. She loved the work of Peter Voulkos who is best known for his abstract expressionist Interpretation of ceramic sculpture. While visiting Betty Woodmans’ ceramic studio in Italy She was struck by her use of bright color and bold gestural marks.
Lora began experimenting with paint instead of glazes in an effort to achieve the pallet and powerful marks desired. Frustrated and burned out by this process, She started throwing fist full of clay at a huge white wall in the studio. The process turned into vibrant splatters of paint over gobs of clay. This became the nexus of her work as she cast India ink, paint and a multitude of other supplies onto the wall. She became lost in this new medium – rubbing, and brushing. Canvas is now the main focus. She is a full-time artist and has a studio in Easthampton, MA. Her webpage is
