Inner Finn Ceramics

Inner Finn Ceramics

With a background in design and engineering, it was a five month residency in Finland that prompted Julie to start her own ceramic design studio. Growing up in rural England, she had always been drawn to natural, organic forms but the particular beauty and stillness of the Finnish winter landscape, with its bare branches and mounds of snow, affected her deeply and has continued to inform her creative vision ever since.

This desire to capture quietness, offering a moment of stillness amongst the bustle and noise of modern living, characterises Julie's work. In both her sculptural and functional pieces she explores the tension of opposites: the interplay between control and chance, between soft form and hard materials and between fleeting movement and stillness.

Today, Julie's work concentrates on slip casting, a technique that enables her to combine her technical skills with those of the sculptor and ceramicist, completing each step of the production process by hand. In addition to undertaking private commissions, her work is sold in independent shops and galleries throughout the UK.
