Having originally trained as a scientific glassblower, Julia Malle now works as an independent artist. She completed her Master of Fine Art with Distinction at Edinburgh College of Art in 2010 and her work is shown in galleries and museums nationally and internationally.

In Julia’s sculptures light and glass come together to form map-like structures that stand independently in the architectonic space. This kind of gestural neon is peculiar and idiosyncratic rather than commercial in character.

The material quality of the tubing exploits both the membrane like nature of a glass tube and its potential for thinness and fragility and the coloristic immateriality of light against the hard, cold surfaces of the glass.
