In this most recent body of work I am making useful pottery decorated with drawings from my daily life in my home: kitchen, living room, and bedroom. With some of these drawings of locations or objects there is a rather abstract representational decoration of the synapses of your brain neurons triggered by dreaming or memory. I am interested in how using this pottery adds to your memory of place and experience and how that is represented on the surface of these pots.

Julia Galloway was born and raised in New England. Her utilitarian pottery has been exhibited across the United States and Canada and she has demonstrated at the NCECA and the Utilitarian Clay Conferences. Her work can be found in the collations of The Long Beach Museum of Art, Long Beach, CA Renwick Gallery, Smithsonian Museum, Washington, DC, The Huntington Museum of Art, Huntington, WV, Archie Bray Foundation, Helena, MT, The Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, and The Woodman Collection: The University of Colorado, Boulder, CO. She earned her undergraduate degree from New York State School of Ceramics at Alfred University and Graduate degree at the University of Colorado in Boulder. For nine years Galloway taught at the School for American Crafts at RIT and recently she moved to Missoula where she is a Professor of Ceramics and Director of the School of Art at the University of Montana.
