Julie Ward

I make ceramics inspired by buildings and landscapes using silky blue and green glazes to contrast with the texture of the stoneware clay to invoke the natural and man-made environments of the coast.

I moved to Fionnphort a few years ago and aspire to spend more time in my studio.  I have been making pottery since I was at school but only managed to set up my studio about 10 years ago; a long held dream while I fitted some making around other full-time jobs.

I enjoy developing and exploring new ideas such as layering clay slips and metal oxides to create landscapes on my pots and trying out some alternative firing methods such as pit-firing.
