Julia Harrison, an artist based in Seattle, Washington, creates unique sculptures out of wood. If wood had emotions and feelings, Julia Harrison would be the translator between it and humans. But instead of using words to describe those emotions, she carves them into the wood itself. From sad eyes to surprised mouths, she is able to imbue humanistic qualities that would otherwise remain beneath its many layers.

What makes Julia Harrison's sculptures particularly arresting are their abstract nature. The facial features carved into each piece often remain alone and disconnected. Instead of a ful profile, Julia Harrison simply concentrates on one feature, whether that is a mouth, eye or even an ear. She also creates unique jewelry pieces for modern women.
