Julie Speidel (born 1941 in Seattle) is a sculptor from Seattle, Washington. Claiming that “the inspiration for [her] work is rooted in the power of travel,” Julie Speidel makes sculptures marked by references to the human body, nature, and an array of historical forms. Citing prehistoric and early Chinese Buddhist works, Pacific Northwest Native American carvings, and modern sculpture as some of her many influences, she blends representation and abstraction in her sculptures and installations. She works in bronze, marble, glass, and stone, crafting forms guided by geometry and also by human heads, limbs, and torsos and such natural features as trees and boulders. Julie Speidel has been exhibited widely and her sculptures are included in many prestigious private and public collections in the U.S. and abroad, including the Tacoma Art Museum, three United States Embassies, the Oracle Collection, the Boeing Collection and the Nordstrom Collection.
