Julie Miller has enjoyed exploring the woods for as long as she can remember. She searches among the delightfully endless variety of leaves for design elements. "The leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations." (from Revelations 22:2) Julie gravitates toward leaves because of the restoration and joy which often come from being outside in God's creation. "The creator...churns out the intricate texture of least works that is the world with a spendthrift genius and an extravagance of care." (from Pilgrim At Tinker Creek, by Annie Dillard)
Her pieces are primarily thrown stoneware, fired in an electric oxidation atmosphere. She uses various techniques to decorate with leaves, oxides, underglazes and glazes.
Julie holds a BFA from Columbus College of Art and Design and has worked as an illustrator and art instructor.
