Julia Toledo - Wood as a Moving, Precious Material
Artist Julia Toledo creates fluid, graceful wearable art from individually shaped pieces of wood. Their movement represents the dancing body and as a dancer, Toledo captures grace and style perfectly. We’ve also shown a close-up of a necklace with its matrix. This is a very clever and flexible method of construction. At first glance, it doesn’t appear to be wood. It invites you to look further and discover more. It’s that second glance, the head turning that happens when a piece really sings - it all makes the creative process so gratifying.
May your work turn heads!
