"I am a welder, designer, structural fabricator, jeweler, and occasionally I have the courage to reply that I am an artist, but my default is simply to say, I am a maker."

Meet The Makers

Julie Lake - New Mexico

Julie Lake would tell you that she "makes things." As a sculptor, designer, jeweler, welder, and structural fabricator based in New Mexico, making things is only the beginning. The daughter of knifemaker Ron Lake, Julie grew up in her father's shop learning to run milling machines and lathes, developing an appreciation for the importance of fine craftsmanship. With a love for beautiful cocktails, gleaned in part from a stint bartending in Portland, OR years ago, Julie designed and created the Martini Roulette, a stunning bar tool and cocktail companion that we're proud to present here on Eatingtools.
