Portrait of artist and maker Julia Clarke, who specialises in using natural materials.

Julia Clarke

Julia Clarke works with willow, both dried and living, with wire, steel, paper, and ceramic to create sculptures for indoor and outdoor spaces. Natural materials and environmental concerns are an important element of her work and the rhythm of weaving and using tactile materials are important to her process.
