Julia lives and works in Ardersier near Inverness. The studio was established in 2010 after Julia moved to the Highlands from Glasgow. She graduated from Glasgow School of Art in 1996 and worked on ceramic mural commissions with school and community groups then set up Deepfired Ceramics Studio in Govan running clay classes for all ages. Her work now is mainly thrown, working in series and making one-off pieces. She finds pleasure in making things which enhance the simple rituals of life; having a cup of tea, enjoying and sharing food or giving a thoughtful present to a friend. People often describe her ceramics as nostalgic and evoking a sense of comfort. She strives for an elegant and simple aesthetic which makes the best use of a material’s characteristics and craftsmanship. She has an online sale once a month, allowing her enough time and space to continually evolve her range of illustrated wares and explore her interests in illustration, colour, texture and form further.
