Justine Ferreri

Born in Irumagawa, Japan, Justine Ferreri has lived all over the United States - but now lives and works in a small coastal North Carolina town. She has dedicated her life to art in one form or another, in her earlier years with the performing arts--classical ballet, music and guitar, folk singing, and musical theater--and now with the visual arts - mainly sculptural ceramic works. Her preferred mediums are earthenware clay and stoneware. By generating an emotional experience in response to viewing her work, her pieces become outward manifestations of the inner needs of the viewer.
