Julie Knight is an instructor at Clayhouse. She is a graduate of the Ringling College of Art and Design and majored in printmaking. She has been living and working in the art world of Manhattan for the past 15 years. In the last decade, Julie has been focusing exclusively on clay at the Greenwich House Pottery in New York City. Knight was awarded the Anna Soik Award for Ceramics in 1999 and was the recipient of the 2009 Mary Blakeley Fellowship at the Haystack School of Crafts in Deer Isle Maine. The focus of Julie’s pottery is on the overall form, (specifically the relationship between the foot and the rim), and unique surface decoration. Julie’s goal as a potter is to create work that is both functional and beautifully tactile.
