Julie Scott is a ceramic artist practicing in Northern Ireland. Having graduated with a BA Honours in Fine and Applied Art with First Class Honours in 2012, she now works from her studio at The Belfast School of Art. Julie Scott sees herself as a maker of ornate, beautiful objects. Her work is recognised for its high levels of fine, hand-built detailing. Clay is textured with vintage laces and finished with oxides, glazes, crackled glass and gold lustre. Her work is influenced by a passion for period drama, literature and a desire to recreate the romance of bygone fashion. Her figurative pieces act as a portal into the past and are a reminder of those who have existed before us. Due to their small scale, these are pieces which aim to reflect the concept of the specimen. Scott also depicts Irish wildlife that she observes in its natural habitat – the sand dunes and bog lands of rural Donegal.
Julie Scott’s work is held in the Arts Council of Northern Ireland, as well as private collections. She has exhibited at Spacecraft Gallery, Belfast; The Workhouse Gallery, County Donegal; and Chelsea Old Town Hall (chosen to represent Craft Northern Ireland at Handmade in Britain) Gallery 1608, Northern Ireland.
