Julie discovered in her college years how clay can be used to create unique pieces for everyday use. She enrolled in ceramics classes every semester for 4 years in college.
“I am fascinated that as a potter I am able to create something out of nothing. I am sensitive to the characteristics of clay coming from the raw ground and made into a useful product.”
She served an apprenticeship at Callanwolde in Atlanta. This opportunity gave her the time to further explore and offer her knowledge to others in a community studio. This also provided the essentials of operating a quality studio. She has conducted private and group instruction in Forsyth, Pickens, Fannin & Gilmer County, Georgia. She has continued to maintain a personal studio since 1997 and offers her work through retail and art show outlets. She welcomes the opportunity to share with you the unlimited possibilities in working with clay.
