Julia finds working with clay very relaxing. She tends to roll out a slab of clay and see where it takes her.
Julia has been making ceramic pieces in her spare time for 3 years after receiving a little electric kiln for a birthday present.
Her studio overlooks her upward sloping garden providing much inspiration as well as being a nice place to be. Her pieces are influenced by nature and the countryside around her.
She started off making ceramic flowers individually in bunches and in earthenware vases that match the flowers.
Recently she has made stoneware vases by folding slabs of clay while still wet. Once leather hard, pattern and texture are added by scoring into the clay with various pottery tools.
