Julie Massie has taken inspiration for her wall sculptures and free standing sculptures from the fragility of the eroding coastline where she lives at Hengistsbury Head in Dorset.

About

This coastline is constantly changing throughout the seasons as the waves break onto the shore. This fragility is represented by the delicate edges of the porcelain ceramic shards that she uses to create her work. The colours she uses are inspired by the colours of the sea, at times dull and at other time glistening in the sunshine; and the colours in the surrounding vegetation that change as the seasons change.

Her work also explores the senses, especially touch and sight. Physical touch is the fundamental element of human development and culture; and she enjoy watching people's reactions when then touch her work. What does it feel like or will it break?

Rising Stars is supported by the Billmeir Charitable Trust. It is organised by New Ashgate Gallery in partnership with the University for the Creative Arts.
