Juliane Shibata

Juliane Shibata is a ceramic artist and educator from Northfield who explores how ornamental patterns are used, adapted, and evolve over time, and how viewers’ own perceptions and backgrounds influence how they see and interpret the motifs.

Juliane was awarded a 2021 McKnight Artist Fellowship for Ceramic Artists and received the Tile Heritage Prix Primo award at the 23rd Annual San Angelo National Ceramic Competition and first place in the 62nd Arrowhead Regional Biennial. Works of hers were included in the 2019 “Blanc de Chine” International Ceramic Art Award exhibition in Beijing and have been commissioned by, among others, Abbott Northwestern Hospital and the Four Seasons Hotel Minneapolis.
