JULIE TERESTMAN

Ceramicist Julie Terestman enjoys the challenge of animating an ordinary object with a bit of the humor, awkwardness, and beauty of being human. While her work is often made in series, all pieces are one of a kind. The forms presented here are inspired by a quiet minimalism from sources such as Japanese tea ware and French country ceramics as well as the works of Lucie Rie and Isamu Noguchi. Terestman is interested in the dynamic created through the use of color—sometimes subtle, sometimes bold—on these pieces. This jar is inspired by classic rustic storage jars of various ceramic traditions. It's meant to have a quiet, grounded quality—sturdy yet not without humor and beauty.
