Julie Massie Dorset, United Kingdom
After many years of teaching art in secondary schools and with her passion for ceramics Julie Massie embarked on a MA Ceramics at UCA Farnham, which she completed in 2016. Since then she has enjoyed creating and exhibiting her ceramic wall art nationally and regionally, taking part in shows such as the RA Summer Exhibition and Collect Open with the crafts council.
Julie Massie takes inspiration for her artwork from the Jurassic Coastline which is a beautiful, interesting and internationally important place because of it’s fragility. The seas strong and destructive waves are the primary shapers of this coastline and usually occur in the winter when the sea is cold and grey, intermingled with blues. These colours and the fragility of this coast are both reflected within her final outcomes. Her work also explores the senses, especially touch, sight and sound.
