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.
Julie works in an intuitive way, taking inspiration from the natural world, as well as her love for textiles and basketry. She enjoys working with white and other monochromatic colours that allow her to play with positive and negative space, light and shadow.
