Luce Artist Biography

Barbara Walter creates rings that are visual “puns.” She is fascinated by mistaken meanings, and by playfully illustrating conversations, daydreams, and tongue twisters, she calls attention to the ways that human beings communicate. The artist hopes that by experiencing such confusion firsthand, the viewer will see the humor in misunderstanding. Her lighthearted attitude shows in the movable parts that she incorporates in each piece, transforming it from functional jewelry to mechanical toy.
