Julie Moon
Pretty Pleas

15 September 2010 – 15 March 2011

Take the pilgrimage to AGYU this fall. Three beautiful shrines will be built in the AGYU vitrines featuring the bad girl of ceramics, Julie Moon. This newly-commissioned work will transform the niches into devotional altars to contemporary craft.

Moon’s work grabbed the attention of art and design circles locally and nationally for using the traditional craft medium to sculpt seductively whimsical and edgy monstrous forms. A recent graduate from the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University, Moon has shown at the Gardiner Museum of Ceramic Arts, the Design Exchange, and has an upcoming exhibition at the Pittsburgh Society for Contemporary Craft, DIY: A Revolution in Handicraft.
