Julia grew up between the mountains and prairies in Canada. Her aesthetic, based on the simplicity of light and form, is derived from this environment of crisp prairie light, undulating hills and grasslands carved by wind and water. After first studying glass blowing in 1996 at the Alberta College of Art and Design (ACAD), she has continued her studies through travels to Scotland, the United States, Spain, France and Hungary where she acquired a knowledge of design and traditional European glass making techniques. She completed her course work at ACAD in 2000 and now owns and operates Firebrand Glass Studio with her husband, Tyler Rock.
