Ceramic Hares and other Animals

Julia Hulme studied and gained a degree from Exeter College of Art and Design in 1998 specialising in printmaking and ceramics.

Julia’s most recent works have all been inspired by her surroundings and she enjoys sculpting the familiar forms of animals both from her own menagerie and surrounding countryside. She likes to emphasise their character, humour and individuality. She has always loved to draw and still includes this as part of the process adding texture and colour to her work with diverse materials such as hessian, string and mats to leave an impression in the base material.

Each creature is hand built from stoneware clay and fired to a very high temperature. Using oxides and slip, this provides each piece with a unique finish.
