Julia Rinklin - Rural Program Assistant & Instructor - (she/her)

Julia began doing ceramics about 4 years ago while attending Santa Barbara City College, where she received a degree in Literature.  In 2020 Julia graduated from San Francisco State University with a Fine Arts degree with a concentration in Ceramics. Her current work is mainly thrown and altered forms through which she revolves around the themes of nurture and connectivity.

Her other passion lies in the exploration of different materials that can be used in ceramics, which was influenced by the materials work she does at Clay By The Bay. She adores teaching and hopes to encourage students to develop a life long passion for ceramics, just as she has.
