As a studio potter, Julie Wiggins makes objects of enjoyment that strike a balance between uniquely functional forms and narrative design. Whether hand built or thrown on a wheel, her porcelain forms are both playful and aesthetically complete. Julie’s travels and studies of traditional studio pottery techniques inspire her work. Her pots reflect memories, movement, and a love of life. Julie graduated from East Carolina University in 2001 with a BFA in Ceramics. In 2005, she received an honorary degree from the Jingdezhen Ceramic Institute in China, where she focused her studies on traditional Eastern techniques. Click hereto read our Q&A with Julie.
"I truly believe using handmade objects brings joy to your life. Perhaps the user slows down in their day and considers the love and care taken to make the piece, and hopefully, that results in a smile." ~ Julie Wiggins, Charlotte NC
