ABOUT JULIAN

As a mold maker and ceramic artist, I explore movement and pattern through modular porcelain forms. I am interested in capturing and examining space through relief and openings within the works as well as through the areas in-between the individual modules within each composition.

I employ modularity in my work because I am interested in its capacity to create unexpected and complex systems and forms out of simple components. The arrangements I create reflect my belief that all systems, including civilizations, are much greater than the simple sum of their parts.

Contextually, my work fits into dialogues around production and the tension that exists in the viewer’s relationship with ceramics and its inherent fragility. Rather than drawing inspiration from the rich history of Ceramics, I prefer to work within contemporary conversations around identity, design and issues surrounding digital fabrication.
