Collection: Julie Pennington

Julie Pennington is a ceramicist based in Canberra, ACT. Her practice is primarily concerned with making porcelain objects, with a particular focus on the vessel as a starting point. Her technique of building with textured coils allows the form and the surface pattern to be created simultaneously, and to reveal the activity of making.

"I work in a fairly intuitive way, inspiration from the natural world is very often a springboard for ideas, as well as my love for textiles and basketry. I enjoy working with white and other monochromatic colours that allow me to play with positive and negative space, light and shadow."
