Julia Whitney Brown is a potter in Kalamazoo, MI. Her and her husband moved to Kalamazoo five years ago to start Tiny Giant Farm- a successful organic vegetable farm and studio. Julia's work is created with everyday use and food in mind.

 

With it's simple and traditional designs taken from French Provincial pottery Julia's practice demonstrates the values of modesty and active listening through the creation of objects intended to be a frame for something larger than itself; ie. the ritual of eating. She believes utopia/heaven/a-hidden-reality-of-goodness is tucked away in plain sight within ordinary experiences like good food, well made objects, and meaningful relationships.
