This hand built pottery is uniquely forged without the use of a potter's wheel by Julie Terwelp in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin. The clay is rolled over a form and dropped onto a hard surface where gravity forces its shape. Once the slab dries to a leather-hard stage, it is carved with graphic lines and patterns to enhance the illustrations that are carefully hand-painted using underglaze and slip. Each original piece results in an expression of joy through color, pattern and texture that culminate in a style the artist fittingly refers to as "happy energy".
