Juliette Walker was born in Madison, Wisconsin, and received a BA in Studio Art from Pomona College in 2013. She has completed residencies at the Lussier Community Education Center (Madison, Wisconsin), the International Ceramics Studio (Kecskemét, Hungary), and the Bubbler at the Madison Public Library (Madison, Wisconsin). In 2018, she was awarded a Kindling Fund Award, a grant administered by SPACE gallery (Portland, Maine) as a part of the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Arts’ Regional Regranting Program, to work on a collaborative project involving trading handmade ceramic mugs for stories about home. She is currently an MFA candidate at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville.
Her interests lie in the overlap between craft, participation, design, collaboration, and ideas of the domestic. Her most recent work has consisted of both ceramic light sculptures and installations. Starting with the lamp, she has been investigating both the object and the light, and how they can interact to trace and reinvent spaces.
