Julie Knight is a graduate of the Ringling College of Art and Design, where she majored in printmaking. She has been living and working in the art world of Manhattan for 19 years. For 16 of those years, she has focused exclusively on clay, studying at Greenwich House Pottery and teaching at the Painted Pot in New York City.
Julie was awarded the Anna Siok 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. In 2010, Julie was awarded a scholarship to study wood firing at Peter’s Valley in New Jersey.
Her goal as a potter is to create work that is both functional and beautifully tactile. She recently had a write-up in BoHo Home.
