This is the work of Julie Lovelace. She has recently completed her B Tech in Ceramic Design at the University of Johannesburg. Her work, which initially appears whimsical has a darker side to it and is concerned with, among other things, the loss of innocence. Julie uses a variety of surface treatments on her work including underglaze, glaze, acrylics and lustres. Look out for Julie's one-person exhibition early 2010.
