Join me for a special open house at the acclaimed Culver City studio of ceramist, Dora De Larios. A limited selection of original ceramics, painting and drawing by the artist will be on view, as well as ceramics, painting, prints and woodwork by local artists from Dora's circle. Irving Place Studio's latest collection of ceramic vessels and tableware will also be available.
Irving Place Studio's roots in Los Angeles date back six decades. The studio was founded by artists Dora De Larios and Ellice Johnston in 1968. Students of noted 20th century ceramic artists Vivika and Otto Heino, Dora and Ellice brought their unique sensibilities to the burgeoning Los Angeles Studio Pottery Movement. Under their guidance, Irving Place Studio became the home of six ceramists, as well as a painter and a sculptor – all bursting with creativity, productivity and community. In the summer of 2012, Irving Place Studio evolved into a collaboration between Dora, her daughter Sabrina Judge, and son-in-law Aaron Glascock. Together, they created a line of contemporary, elegant, hand thrown ceramics for everyday use. Combining Dora’s endless knowledge of clay and glazes with Sabrina and Aaron's contemporary design aesthetic, Irving Place Studio now offers handmade tableware and timeless vessels of the highest quality.
