Julie Olson - Personal Teapot
6.75"w x 4.25"d x 5.25"h
Julie Olson has been working with clay since 1976 and established White Oak Pottery in 1980 while living in the township of White Oak. The business was relocated to Cary in 1989 and then again in March 2002 to Durham, where she now resides.
As a full-time studio potter and artist, she produces Raku, salt-fired functional ware, and white stoneware pieces fired in an electric kiln. She has been exploring metalsmithing, papermaking, woodworking, and stained-glass techniques to move into mixed media. Spiritual and ritual themes heavily influence her work.
*Teapots that are sold must remain on display in the gallery as part of the exhibit until the show closes on September 10, 2020. After the show closes, teapots will be carefully packed and shipped by September 26 or available for pick-up at the gallery.
