About the Artist
Originally from Jacksonville, NC, Julie Wiggins 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.
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 in Charlotte NC, she continues to support herself as a studio potter and educator.
