Community Events
In cooperation with Alice Holt Forest, the community built and fired a brick ‘bottle’.

Album of Julia’s Work
Album of Julia’s Work
Julia’s work has always slipped between hand formed and thrown pieces for use. Her Antennae are always alert to ideas or reworking unresolved concepts.  The unpredictable nature of clay transformed by fire continuously offers new pathways to explore. A constant has been the use of local clays, maintaining a connection with the environment, Geology and Ceramic history.

If Julia has a Tombstone it’ll say, “Wait ! not yet, I’ve got another idea”
