Julia Douglas is an artist who works across many mediums. I loved this cheese grater when I found it yesterday, and I was reminded of my previous post on this artist and her chandelier, made in collaboration with Claire Waddle and Rebecca Wilson, which also elevated utility household items into wonderful pieces of art.
