Julie Clements works out of her home studio “Clay Pigeon Ceramics” in northern California. She began exploring clay art and sculpture during her undergraduate study at Emory University. Post-graduation she continued learning and developing during a yearlong internship at Callanwolde Fine Art Center in Atlanta, Georgia. Current themes in her work include explorations into animals, ecology, and science. She also works as a veterinary technician in zoo medicine part-time. As a “zoo tech” Julie continually renews her interest in the animal world. She hopes to convey her intense interest in animals in all their unique forms.
