Julie Cloutier is an artist living and working in rural California. Her ceramic work focuses on handheld sculptures, functional wares and everyday objects. She investigates domestic rituals and draws upon her architectural background to inform her minimalist lines. The webshop is updated monthly with utilitarian wares and one-of-a-kind sculptures. Her practice and studio space inspired a women's workwear collection made in San Francisco by Line Design Studio. She was recently interviewed on Making Ways, a podcast where you can learn more about her path to being an independent artist working with clay.
