installations

Installation work or 'site specific' work can be found through Julies work as this is an essential part of her ceramic practice. From large installation work produced for her MA show to pieces that can be found outside in a woodland setting Julie has created 'site specific' work throughout her career based on nature and landscape with aspects filtering through into her educational work.

A Cloak for Alice
Witches 400
Platform Gallery, Clitheroe
500+ black stoneware feathers

The cloak made of feathers was created to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the Pendle Witch Trails of 1612 where 11 innocent men and women were hung for witchcraft. Alice Nutter, a local woman to Roughlee was said to live at Crowtrees Farm, where she was residing when arrested and made to walk the long trek to Lancaster to be over the moor to be tried and hung.

The Moo Trail
Barrowford Park to Higherford Mill

The Trail created by the resident artists of Higherford Mill was to raise awareness of the decline of the Dairy industry in Lancashire. Julie created her piece with 50 porcelain cast milk bottles using a mix of 1/3 pint bottles given to one of the artists when they were at school to the new style milk bottles of today.

Bowlands; an Inspirational landscape
Bowland Festival
Platform Gallery, Clitheroe

This 'feathered' piece was created in response to the landscape of the Bowland Forest. The sculpture is based on the shape and wing beat of the Hen Harrier found on the moors of Bowland. Each individual feather is made from bone china, porcelain or chocolate black stoneware strung from a flocked aluminum wing giving gentle movement within the gallery space and casting shadows on to the gallery wall. The piece was exhibited at Craft in The Bay, Cardiff in Spring 2012 for their Personal Landscape exhibition.
