Meet the Artist: Julie Pennington is a Canberra-based ceramic artist. Julie's practice was originally in the Southern Highlands of NSW where she worked from her studio as well as teaching ceramics in the local area.
Julie works predominately in porcelain, and uses the unglazed white surface to explore her interest in pattern and texture. Hand-built sculptural work is her focus, whether that be through experimental pieces or vessel forms.
Julie has been a finalist in a number of ceramic competitions, and in 2016 was the Winner of the Significant 3D Award at Stanthorpe Art Festival Qld. Julie has exhibited nationally and has accepted private international commissions. A recent publication of the book Clay: Contemporary Ceramic Artisans by Amber Cresswell Bell includes Julie's work.
