About the Maker
Born and bought up on the Cornish Coast Julia Crimmen has always had a love of art and design. With the encouragement of her family, she returned to education and studied a foundation diploma in Art and Design at Falmouth University in 2006. After Falmouth, Julia found a general ceramics course at Truro college and then took part in intensive courses with Jack Doherty, Richard Phethean and Linda Bloomfield, which informed her practice hugely.
Julia Crimmen makes a large range of wheel thrown stoneware and porcelain ceramics for everyday use from her garden studio in Cornwall. Julia uses simplified stencils and slip to build up patterns and texture, adding rich glossy glazes to enhance these details.
