Julia Dault

Julia Dault, Artist

Julia Dault tackles canvases with swift swipes of paint and rhythmic repeats. Dault's sculptures mimic the structure of her painting (or visa versa) with tubular and reflective curves, with lines and colors belted together into a tightly contained bulbous form. Many of Dault's pieces are named after 1980s pop songs, Electric Youth (hello, Debbie Gibson), Rico Suave (yess), 2 Legit (to quit), etc etc - suitable names for these wet and wild works. Dault lives and works in Brooklyn.

Lindsey

Lindsey Hampton, Ceramicist and Graphic Designer

Lindsey Hampton splits her time between designing dynamic concert posters and soothing ceramics at her potters wheel. Her process and mediums are fluid, skipping from sculpture to print design is natural progression for Hampton. "Everything in my vision holds equal weight, whether it's graphic design, ceramics, sculpture, photography, music, anything. There's a great deal of spontaneity involved. It all takes shape within the action and is rarely sketched or planned." Palettes, shapes and patterns in her work speak together across all platforms, her voice is loud and clear. Hampton lives and works in Vancouver, BC.

Some Wow made in 2013, contact Edmonds if interested in his stellar stoneware.

Korban/Flaubert’s Hunter Maquettes

Sydney's Korban/Flaubert make large-scale sculptures and design objects out of flowing, bending, beautifully contorted metal — objects that show off both their own technical capabilities and those of their Sydney metalworking studio. But before they scale up, they often start small, with miniature models that function like a sketchbook come to life, showing off their ideas to potential clients. Their latest series of maquettes — each of which is only a few feet wide — features "a single folded, crushed line compressed into an agitated solid," they write. "An artifact in Corten steel."
