About CruzinArt Ceramics and Julie Cruz
"CruzinArt" was born out of combining the two last names that I have had in my lifetime. "Arter" was my maiden name when I was a wee lass. "Cruz" is my married name - thus "CruzinArt".
Like so many others, I started my life of pottery-making in a ceramics studio in high school in Fullerton, California where art and PE were my favorite. 40 + years later I received a gift certificate from my son and his wife to Muddy's Studio in Santa Ana and the love and passion for pottery was rekindled. I spent a year of practicing part time after work into the dark of night and on weekends. Circumstances "allowed" me to then pursue my love for pottery full time and I have been at it full time for 1 year.
I enjoy making functional pottery and things that folks would love to use and display in the their homes. I am constantly developing new designs and styles and always looking for new creations that people will enjoy. I sell my goodies at makers' fairs, craft shows, farmers' markets as well as online on my etsy page.

I am so encouraged by people who love my work and tell me it's beautiful. I am proud that in my 60s I decided to go for the dream and do what I love to do - pottery. I am always ready to encourage others to do the same. Visit me and see me through my pottery - From the earth, through my hands, to yours.
