In the Studio with Julie Moon

Porcelain Skull by Julie Moon

This month’s edition of “In the Studio” features the work of ceramic artist Julie Moon. Julie Moon is originally from Canada & worked in the garment district in Toronto before she began her career in the field of ceramics.  She received her MFA from the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University in 2010 and is now a resident artist at The Clay Studio right here in Philly.  Julie creates incredible sculptures but also has a production line of ceramic jewelry & skulls that we carry here at Art Star.  Julie was kind enough to give us a little glimpse into her everyday studio practice through photos.  Enjoy!

A snapshot of Julie’s studio at The Clay Studio.  Love seeing all the sculptures drying on the side there!

Julie slip casts all of her skulls from a mold.  Here they are drying before they can go in the kiln.

Here are some flowers in progress. These will be made into jewelry or used as crowns on some of the skulls’ heads.  The skulls with flower crowns always sell out first here at Art Star.

A bucket of glazes.  The next step is glazing.

Here they are after they have been glaze fired.  The final step will be to apply the decals to the skull heads.

I hope you enjoyed this little sneak peek.  Here are some more pieces by Julie that we just added to the site!
