Julie Olson has been involved with clay for nearly 40 years, and has recently been joined in the studio by her hasband, Pete Cozart.  Together they produce functional and decorative pottery, garden art, mixed media pieces, handmade journals and photography.


Julie has taught advanced pottery classes at NCSU Crafts Center for 28 years and has recently begun instructing at Claymakers in Durham.  After attending classes and workshops in metalsmithing, stained glass, lampworking, woodworking and bookmaking, she began incorporating these into her clay work as mixed media.


"I guess you could say I have become a mixed media artist...with a strong background in clay."
