Julia Paul Pottery at West Elm in D.C.

West Elm opened a new store in D.C. this week, and I am happy have my pottery available in the store. This morning the Washington Post has a glowing review of the new store and a mention of the local D.C./Virginia-area designers that are featured in the shop, with a link to my Etsy shop. Thank you West Elm!

My new note card line….

I am happy to introduce a new line of note cards featuring my Polaroid photography of the mountain forest of Virginia. The cards are printed on silky matte paper, blank inside with plenty of room for notes, and come with an envelope in a cellophane sleeve. Each forest scene is available in a 4-pack, or get a mixed set of four different cards, one for each season. They are great as a gift, or grab a couple of packs to send out for holiday greetings.

Available in the shop or on my website:

exciting news!

A while back I submitted my artist profile to Martha Stewart American Made, which spotlights the maker, supports the local, and celebrates the handmade. It is an award program that celebrates makers that have turned their passion into a small business (like me), and I have been named a 2014 American Made MSL Awards finalist in the ceramics category.

So exciting! Thank you Martha Stewart!

Thank you! Potters Cast

I was interviewed for The Potters Cast, a podcast by Paul Blais dedicated to connect the community of ceramic artists and potters around the world by bringing interviews of other ceramicists straight to you. Paul is a super generous and kind interviewer and is adding so much to the potting community. There is a whole library of interesting interviews you might want to check out. My interview is here.

Thanks, again!

non-joiners, welcome!

If you are a non-joiner…I totally understand. Me too. But sometimes there are special, low-maintenance pottery-type things that are worthwhile to sign up for. If you are interested, I invite you to sign up to receive seasonal email updates with Julia Paul Pottery special event and preview information. I do not share your information and I will only send something your way a couple of times a year. I look forward to being in touch, no obligations.
