Julian Covey is a Halifax based ceramic artist. He was born in Sydney, Nova Scotia and has spent much of his life in Montreal. He completed his ceramics education at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in 2018 and he maintains both sculptural and utilitarian ceramic practices. Beyond the studio, Julian works as a technician for Blaauw Kilns, often teaches classes and is currently the president of the board of directors of Visual Arts Nova Scotia. He is passionate about ceramic art and its ability to record and communicate complex concepts through material culture.

Using the Craft LAIR as a public studio, Julian will create a series of abstract biomorphic slipcast porcelain sculptures. This work expands on the work and methodology he developed for his graduation exhibition at the Anna Leonowens Gallery in 2018. The models for each of these objects will be made using both hand and digital fabrication processes and the final works will be airbrushed and treated with a high-gloss glaze.
