Jessica Jane Julius

Jessica Jane Julius objects, installations, and drawings reflect on the anxieties of the digital through returning to the analog. Working in a wide variety of media including found, hot, and cold glass, flameworking, and rub-on dry transfer letters, her work attempts to make meaningful connections amidst the noise, to transform the intangible into tangible, and to create balance by applying chaos to order and order to chaos.

Julius is currently a Professor at Tyler School of Art in the Glass program, a part-time Exhibition Director at a grassroots gallery in Philadelphia, and the co-founder and active member of the artist collective The Burnt Asphalt Family. She has been published in the New Glass Review in 2001, 2008, 2009, 2010, and 2012, received the Emerging Artist Award from the Glass Art Society, and received CGCA fellowships from Wheaton Arts Creative Glass Center in 2007 & 2011 and Museum of Glass residency in 2013. She is currently on the board of The Glass Art Society. Her work has been included in numerous national exhibitions including “Craft Spoken Here” at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. She lives in Philadelphia with her husband and son.
