Maker's Details - Ayton, Julie

Julie makes functional and decorative wheel thrown porcelain pieces and stoneware, glazed over textured surfaces or etched and inlaid with striking monochrome decoration.

Category: Ceramics
Julie's pots are wheel thrown, and often textured before glazing.

I enjoy the thinking involved in making, and particularly the synthesising of form and surface. I work in short series, and while having a mental picture of the final result, often succumb to the temptation to try something different when doing a familiar task - even with deadlines looming!  This helps to keep pots fresh, and interest sharp, but doesn't always produce the expected result. 
Julie is also exploring raw glazing with porcelain, to slimline the process between first  touching the clay to opening the kiln.
