Victoria Walton is a multidisciplinary artist living in Baltimore. They have an MFA in Ceramic Art from Alfred University and a BFA with a focus in ceramics from Towson University. Their work has been exhibited locally and across the East Coast, showing at the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts (NCECA) confrence, Baltimore Clayworks, and The Clay Studio in Philadelphia. Walton is an adjunct professor in Baltimore and a community organizer of inclusive ceramics workshops.
Victoria explores the wonder and complexity of Black identity, creating sculpture and video works that center the narratives of women and gender-expansive people. She draws from her own life: reflecting on the intersection of her identities, their chronic illness-disability and queerness. Their work illustrates the conditions that reveal how our environment builds and breaks us down simultaneously, making multi-layered connections between clay[terra] and the body.
