Julie Wiggins Pottery
Julie Wiggins is a full time studio potter living and working in Charlotte, North Carolina. She is represented by Lark & Key Gallery, Crimson Laurel Gallery, The Collector’s Gallery, and more. Her work has been featured at the American Craft Council and the Mint Museum of Craft + Design, as well as several national conferences and exhibitions, including NCECA. Julie has nearly a decade of experience as an educator, including courses taught at Clayworks and The McColl Center for Visual Art.
Originally from Jacksonville, NC, Julie graduated from East Carolina University with a BFA in Ceramics. In 2005, she received an honorary degree from Jingdezhen Ceramic Institute in China, where she focused her studies on traditional Eastern techniques. In 2006 and 2010, she received a Regional Artist Grant to purchase a treadle wheel and pug mill. That same year, she completed construction of her studio in Charlotte,
where she lives with her husband.
Julie has fond memories from growing up, surrounded by warm blue skies, expansive beaches, and bright green farmland. Though
her work as a ceramicist has taken her to Europe, Mexico, Morocco, and beyond, she still holds a place in her heart for the easy-going Southern lifestyle. Today, as an active member of the clay community,
she continues to support herself as a studio potter and educator.
