I've been making hand thrown work and treating the surfaces with wax resist for 30 years. I never tire of the process or the results. That being said, my work does evolve. I've started altering my thrown forms, and my palette changes weekly. Because I have been both painting with wax and throwing for so long, there is a fluidity to my controlled forms and patterns. This rigor in contrast to the joyful chaos of the surfaces and colors hold the body of my work together.

Pottery is a continuous curiosity; how it’s made, how it feels, its shape, its surface, how it exists in a home as an object, or a tool, or maybe an image. When making pottery, I search for poised forms that suggest sculpture, respect utility and perform well, they should be confident and handsome. Each piece is ready for a conversation and willing to be part of a greater surrounding.

I create one-of-a-kind and small groupings of sculptural vessels that explore the meeting point between natural and man-made worlds. The forms integrate these divergent sensibilities into a composed landscape, such as a stand of bamboo-like, truncated cylinders, perforated with windows to look like corroded skyscrapers, or a simple form such as a sphere, marked on its surface with an off-center, wandering imprint, like bird tracks in the sand.

A structured composition is vital within the framework of my vessels. The rim and feet of my pots are strongly defined areas, while the space in between lends itself to be broken down in parts. I incorporate a repeated pattern over the surface to assist in accentuating the volume within the forms. The surface of my vessels is constantly explored. Sensitivity in the glazing process must be attained in order to preserve the essence of the piece.

My studies of ancient ceramics have inspired an appreciation for the medium and have greatly contributed to my aesthetic sense. Central to my designs and throwing technique is making pieces both light in weight and satisfying to hold and use. I believe that form and function are mutually enabling. Each vessel created is both purposeful and visually satisfying. Simplicity of design and color are the sine qua non of my work, making it both modern and approachable.

I have found that living and working in the space between clay’s opposites to be a challenge that continues to motivate me. Clay is cool and moist yet requires the fiery heat of the kiln. It's soft and malleable yet rigid and brittle. Clay is inert and inorganic, a mixture of silicas and aluminas, yet it is also in some ways alive and unpredictable. Whether throwing, pinching, slicing, piercing or embossing, the sensual feel of the porcelain enhances the experience. Achieving grace of line and form is paramount to me creatively.

Springfield, MO

My craft as a potter allows me to both create and embellish. The potter's wheel is my chosen tool for creating clean, classic, and uncomplicated porcelain vessels dressed in intricate pattern. The pure white canvas of this clay provides a striking contrast to the layers of liquid black slip that coat my surfaces. My designs are my collection of favorite patterns, images, memories, or stories.

My clay vessels order and dignify human life. The materiality of clay and glaze are emphasized by the lack of applied surface decoration & ornamentation. I actively utilize geometry in my slipcast forms.

Each piece is hand built utilizing coil, pinch and slab construction methods. Various slips, colored with stains are applied between the damp and leather hard stages of this mid-fire stoneware. This work is a narrative of my view of human behavior and the constant challenge of living with a wandering mind.

Julie Crosby

TRUMANSBURG, NY

Past traditions in pottery offer a standard for making soulful and enduring work. Influenced by these traditions, I create contemporary pots specifically for use in the home and the beautification of domestic space. My forms are thrown on the wheel, then scraped, smoothed and cut during the leather hard stage.
