FaceBook: julie windler-the riverside potter
I began to throw in the early 70’s
(1970s, not my age) in Mississippi. It
just began as a lark, something
interesting to try; then I was hooked. I
continued my pottery in Virginia:
showing in galleries, in craft shows and
as a potter-in-residence. My son, who
was a baby at the time, slept in his
basket below the display table at craft
shows, and watched me throw from his
swing. Then back to Georgia where I
continued my pottery for several more
years. That period included teaching pottery on the library channel, receiving a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts for an arts and crafts television show and eventually moving onto full time television production. We lived in Atlanta for 25+ years where I continued my television career and growing our family,,, pottery took a back seat. In Atlanta, I was a television producer and staff announcer with WXIA-TV (and occasionally on-camera), then joined CNN as a news producer and eventually WSB-TV as a producer. Many years later, I returned home to Rome, Georgia as a Realtor with the family business. And then wonderfully, ..rediscovering my pottery 15+ years ago.. It’s been fun coming full circle. I know, I’ve probably made everyone dizzy by now reading this.--...try being me!
