- the story
Get the Point?
Toronto-based ceramic artist Julie Moon creates contemporary art pieces with a sculptural edge. After a decade-long career working in the garment industry, Julie turned to ceramics to further explore her love of graphics and pattern, and to explore fashion as it relates to cultural expectations of beauty, identity, and gender. Each of her smooth, geometric pieces is formed by hand and is carefully painted to highlight the form's dimensionality.
In this triangular necklace, the 3D angles pop with bright washes of glossy paint in an atypical palette rich with lavender, tangerine, and sea green. Due to the handmade nature of this sculptural necklaces, no two pointed statement pieces are going have exactly the same thickness or brushwork. Handmade in Toronto, Canada.
