Charcoal Drawings. Paper, Clay and Porcelain Sculptures and Vessels.
Exhibited together the lines , marks and shapes of the large charcoal drawings show a correlation with the Clay Sculptures. They offer different perspectives of the mountain landscape by exposing the journey of exposed rock faces, revealing an intricate network of lines and channels that have been eroded over time by extreme weather.
The sculptures are made using a variety of clays, that are ripped, teared and sculpted to form a body that then reveals pattern and networks of fine clay. Inspired by both extreme landscapes and natural formations both the drawings and sculptures follows a physical and sometimes cultural journey as Julie also gives her interpretation of the artefacts that have been shaped by the countries geology.
Julie studied Fine Art at Hertfordshire University before following a path in sculpture. She is part of the Digswell Art Trust and exhibits her work across Hertfordshire.
