Julia Rushworth

Julia is an independent glass blower based near Wetherby, North Yorkshire.

She studied at The National Glass Centre  in Sunderland  graduating in  2014 and recently  set up a small glass blowing studio at  her home.  She is now a full – time artist, having previously worked in the NHS for 28 years.

Each piece I make is unique, made by hand using traditional techniques partnered with a contemporary aesthetic . Much of my work is influenced by my work in the NHS , the beauty and fragility of the human body  and the uneasy fascination we have with medical science.  I am also greatly inspired by local landscapes.

Julia appeared in the TV series  Kirstie Allsopp’s Hand Made Christmas, December 2016.  She was also  selected by the Crafts Council for inclusion in their talent development programme, Hothouse 17.  Julia has exhibited widely in 2017.
