Vendor Spotlight

Name: Julie Merwin

What do you create?
I am a glass blower. I make jewelry, figurines, sculpture, etc.

How long have you been crafting?
Off and on for 5-6 years

What is the weirdest thing you've ever created?
Hmmm, I’ve done some intuitive drawing that comes out in dream symbolism and rather abstract. I find my subconscious quite fascinating really.

What is your proudest creation?
My last sculptural pieces. They just keep getting better.

Do you have any education or previous job experience that effected your art work?
Not really, although… I like to develop my intuition. Which is an education of sorts. Doing art some times helps with that.

What was your best vacation?
I went on a windsurfing trip to Baja several years back. We car camped on the beach and occasionally heard the splashing of dolphins or seals in the morning as the sun was rising.

5 favorite things about UT:
The Mountains
Open Spaces
Outdoor recreation
Yoga community
Energy work community
