Julie Dean is an emerging contemporary glass artist making thought provoking kiln-formed glass blocks. Fused layers of glass embed graphic images evoking emotion and developing narrative. With a background in design Julie started working with glass in 2011. Her work explores the fragility and resiliance of the human condition.
I create work for a variety of contexts and sell through galleries and by commission. My work includes sculptural objects as well as more obviously functional pieces such as lighting and screens.
I have come to glass-making after a career in publishing as a writer and an editor.
