From her studio in Leigh - on Sea, Julie presents a body of work shaped by living alongside the transient beauty of the Thames Estuary. A response to the ebb and flow of the tides, smoothing and unsettling, revealing and concealing a myriad of forms and found objects and fragments of history.

The guiding principle or philosophy behind Julie's work is not an intellectual scrutiny of objects but a sense-driven, textural communication, aiming to activate the senses through the sensuality of the form and its material qualities. She has hand-built in stoneware for over 35 years and her work incorporates found sea-glass, seaweed, shells and pebbles taken from her local shoreline.
