Join us as Julie Fawn Boisseau-Craig, a contemporary glass artist, talks about her experience as a full-time artist. Photos of her art will show the evolution of her work from being strictly a glass artist to one who combines clay, metal and/or wood with her glass. Today, her work directly responds to the contradictions of life using her wide range of skills with a mix of materials to create unique art.
Julie works in glass and porcelain primarily but utilizes metals and wood as necessary to create her sculptural pieces. She designs and creates many functional and wearable works at Wild Pony Studio, her personal studio in Rockford, Tennessee and does hot shop glass works at the Jackson County Green Energy Park in Dillsboro, North Carolina. She has shown nationally and participated in many workshops and demonstrations. Her work directly responds to the contradictions of life.
Julie received her Masters of Fine Arts Degree in December of 2012, after which, she taught at Western Carolina University and Southwestern Community College in North Carolina. Julie is currently the President of the East Chapter of Tennessee Craft and Vice President for the Art Market Gallery in downtown Knoxville. Julie now concentrates on her studio work, art shows and teaching workshops.
