Working mainly with large scale ceramic sculptures and installations, Julia explores the relation between our bodies, thoughts and surroundings. With a background in architecture, she is interested in how we perceive and value objects and spaces in our built environments. She works with both abstract and figurative forms, using both made-up and existing recognisable shapes, symbols and archetypes. By using clay and ceramics in their different stages, from wet to fired, she explores what the different materialities express.
