Julie Luck: Potter

I first started pottery at the Adult Learning Centre in 1992 after being fascinated with the techniques since my school days. I attended classes for approximately 10 years and now I practice my craft at home. I have attended many workshops and conferences over the years to enhance and broaden my knowledge in both the technical and practical sense. Some of these have been delivered in a tutorial manner and some have been hands on. 

About 1995 I joined a local mixed media group (Phoenix, Macedon Ranges Art & Craft) who exhibit works twice a year in my local area. I enjoy the experiences and ideas we share as a group. In about 1998/9 I was invited to join a local potters group (Koorakooracup Potters) who exhibit once a year in my local area. We also try to fit in a workshop or two & have a bonding week of making during January each year. 

In 2004 I attended the 1st Suncoast Clayworkers ‘Springfever’ conference. I found the presentation and delivery of techniques by the attending tutors excellent and even though I am living interstate decided to become a member so I could experience and be informed of new and exciting ideas and trends. I find this to be a vibrant, friendly and welcoming group to be involved with.

 I am currently teaching pottery at the very place I first started. My class has students from beginners to advanced, from ages 14 to 64.  Pottery involves so many aspects that I never stop learning and there is always something happening to point me in a new direction. I find all of these activities rewarding as well as having an encouraging influence on my work.
