Julie Spako

Ceramic + Pottery Artist

"I love to create a balance between the complexity of drawing with the simplicity of hand-built pottery. "

Julie SpakoAll of Julie Spako’s ceramics are made in her Austin, Texas studio.  She works with high fire porcelain and stoneware that is fired to 2350F.  Each and every piece is a hand-drawn original creation. All of Julie’s glazes are food safe, dishwasher, and microwave safe.  

Inspiration – Julie’s grandmother’s Blue Willow collection has had a tremendous influence on her ceramics. Julie is fascinated by textiles, especially embroidery patterns. She strives to incorporate the same level of detail and complexity of design as those beautiful works of art. 

"I love how a story can convey something you use every day for a very practical purpose. Although I did not realize it, the Blue Willow collection was the beginning of how beautiful objects for everyday use would become important to me, both as an artist and as a collector."
