Artists at Work: Julia Haft-Candell by Anna Katz
For nearly a decade, Julia Haft-Candell’s ceramic sculptures have been drawn from a consistent vocabulary of forms: knots, combs, interlocking hands, braids, and infinity symbols, among others.

Anna Katz sat down with Haft-Candell in her Glassell Park studio to discuss the ways in which she approaches ceramics as a container for ideas; the sometimes vexing trend towards “lumpiness”; and the place of art history in the infinite school, an alternative to institutional ceramics instruction that she founded in 2014.
