"Ceramics"by Julie Diane
The contemporary organic feel of Julie Diane’s ceramic work is a blend of her passions for the natural world and its inspiring edibles, shapes and colors. Several artistic careers in ceramics, floral design, painting, edible garden design and pastry chef all focus on the natural world. Her vessels are an emotional concept with which to gather and share all that we feed ourselves and others. She is always striving in her artwork to span, or engage several mediums and senses at once; to bring it all to its most tactile level. Being drawn to a piece by the organic shapes and colors, we are also compelled to listen to the artwork, and to touch it, wanting to really "taste" the piece.
