Julia uses kiln-forming disciplines to narrate textural stories through glass. Her practice is continually informed and inspirited by heirloom possessions and antiquities. Often she introduces hand carving skills and printmaking elements within her glass making process.
Taking inspiration from provenance and objects with a tale to tell she is fascinated by the unearthed and opalized aesthetics of ancient world glass. Partnering a love of artefacts with a contemporary approach to making Julia hand forms delicate glass artworks connecting an inquisitive creative practice with age old methodologies.
