Julie Kinney's Profile
I've been known to make functional pottery, mostly cups, bowls and plates. I vary between high-fired stoneware and porcelain(fired mostly in atmospheric kilns) and low-fire colorful earthenware.
I have also developed this fascination with ceramic buttons. My potter friend was leaving for grad school and his going away present was a set of wood-fired buttons with his chop (his stamp from the bottom of his pots) pressed into each button. And a big bowl of chex mix. It started out as kind of a joke gift and what I thought would be a brief break from my wheel. It has since turned into this on-going process of exploring ideas and experimenting with color, layers, pattern, textures and design.
I find inspiration in all things Scandinavian, especially Swedish textiles and folk art designs. I love touching…
