Julie Crosby is a full time studio potter residing in the Finger Lakes region of New York State. She began working in clay as a student at the Hartford Art School, where she earned her BFA in ceramics in 1995. Julie learned how to build kilns while working with Lisa Stinson in 1998 at Louisiana Tech University. Opportunities to continue her clay education in the form of artist-in-residencies, workshops, kiln building and teaching brought her around the country, until she made Upstate New York her home in 2001. Julie owned and operated a pottery studio and wood kiln in Harpursville New York until 2004. In 2007 she was awarded an artist fellowship from the New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA). With that, she built her Bourry Box wood/salt kiln, which she fires two or three times per year. Julie continues to build and design kilns for studio potters across the country. Her work has been included in many national juried and invitational exhibitions, select private collections and various publications, including Ceramics Monthly and The Studio Potter. Julie has exhibited at the Smithsonian Craft Show, the Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show and the Craft Shows at Chautauqua, where she received the Award for Excellence in 2014. Julie has been a member of Handwork Cooperative in Ithaca NY since October of 2013.
