Vibrant, quirky, petite. Julie Collis’ sense of style marries classic forms of function(ish) with quirkiness and charm. It connects the old with the new and tackles topics that bring little smiles to our hearts.
Julie was trained in Jewellery and Textile Design, and you find reference to this in the form of surface design she applies to a lot of her work, such as the collection “Memories of a Grandmother”. Of late she has worked in media such as metal and glass, and has also started to use form as decoration, minimizing the surface design.
“I don’t think it really matters what I’m making or what material I’m using, it is the idea and the intention that is important. If I can make something that gives the user or viewer pleasure or pause for thought, then I am happy” — Julie Collis
