About the Artist: JuliaTsetso is a member of the Liidlii Kue First Nation in the
Dehcho(FortSimpson, NorthwestTerritories) .She has a variety of education and
work experiences(Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts in Ceramics, Urban & Regional
Planning Diploma, Community Justice Coordinator, House Painter, and Dental Therapist). Life in a northern town has a affirmed her love for the natural environment
and her community. Nature, birch-bark baskets and traditional Dene garments are
the main inspirations for her sewing and pottery. Her recent work includes sewn
decorative cases for hunters(roll out canvas cases for tools and knifes heaths)
and Dene baby essentials(mossbags and babybelts). Her stoneware pots are
made on a potter’s wheel then hand altered to redefine their shape carved,
bisque-fired, glazed and finally fired in a wood kiln. She incorporates traditional
Dene materials(glass and semi precious-stonebeads, antler and bonebeads,
moose-hide and caribou-hide and fur) to decorate her sewing and to add accents
to her pottery. These mixed mediums have become her signature and have allowed her to put new spins on her Dene traditions. Julia established Fluttery by
Pottery in Rocky Mountain House, Albertain 2005, and moved it to Fort Simpson,
Northwest Territories two years later. Recently, she’s changed the name to Flutter by Sales & Service to incorporate additional services(pottery, sewing, hemp
product sales, and contract construction with her husband). She continues to live
in and to make things for life in the north.
