Curios Ceramics

Curios Ceramics - Julie Filion, Christchurch

Curios -  plural noun; a rare, unusual, or intriguing object.

"Curiosity" serves as Julie's guiding principle in shaping her personal style over the past two years. Her journey began with a fascination for ceramics, prompting her to enroll in courses at local Christchurch pottery studios. What started as a hobby quickly evolved into a passionate pursuit as she established her own studio at home, delving into the world of clay; to experiment, create, and embrace failure as a catalyst for growth. Her inspiration draws heavily from the untamed beauty of New Zealand's natural landscapes, particularly the rugged shorelines and their enchanting inhabitants. Texture serves as a cornerstone of her creations, often integrating locally sourced clays and sands gathered through foraging expeditions.
