Julie Spako

About the Artist

Julie Spako is an Austin, TX based potter. Working in brown stoneware, she creates beautiful objects for everyday use. Influences included her grandmother’s Blue Willow dinnerware, Eastern European folk patterns, and textiles – especially embroidery.┬áHer rustic hand built forms, with slight variations in shape, offer a nice juxtaposition to the complexity of the hand-drawn, hand-painted glaze work.
