Skye-based artist, Julie Brook, will be inviting visitors to accompany her on her African adventures during a talk given at the Royal Scottish Academy of Art and Architecture in Edinburgh.

Julie, who has worked in the deserts of Libya and Namibia, will also be showcasing her work in the Hebrides.  

She will also reveal details about a planned new project she is proposing to begin in Japan.  

In February 2017, Julie gave a public talk with 15th generation Raku teabowl maker, Raku Kichizaemon XV.  The exhibition, entitled The Cosmos in a Teabowl and recently opened at the Museum of Modern Art in Kyoto, showcases teabowls from all 15 generations of the masters, beginning with Chojiro.  

NHK news filmed the discussion between the pair, as well as capturing Julie's visit to Raku Kichizaemon XV's workshop in Kyoto.

Julie's talk at the The Royal Scottish Academy of Art and Architecture will take place on Saturday 1 April at 1:15pm.  An exhibition of her work will take place from 1 April to 7 May 2017 at  The Royal Scottish Academy of Art and Architecture, The Mound, Edinburgh, EH2 2EL.
