Modern Illustrated Ceramics Handmade in Scotland
Julia Smith graduated from Glasgow School of Art in 1996 then followed a career in community art until 2010. That year she moved to the Highlands and set up her pottery studio on the banks of the Moray Firth. The remote environment she lives in has strongly influenced both the work she produces and the materials she uses.
In 2013 she went to Denmark on a residency to research and develop experimental clay printing techniques and a trip to Iceland in 2014 led to a series of pots inspired by the volcanic and glacial landscape.
She exhibits her sculptural pots regularly throughout the UK and sells a range of everyday tableware through her online shop.
