Janelle Gramling has been a sculptor with a full-time studio practice in Milwaukee, WI for over 15 years. Her work ranges from fine art sculpture to functional home goods and wearables with a main focus in ceramics and fiber. Gravity is an important element in most of her fine art work, as sculptures are designed to hang from the wall or ceiling, often by one singular hanging point, activating her intended drape and balance. In all mediums she practices, Gramling is self-taught having developed her skills over the years without a formal arts degree through autodidactic discovery and community resources. When she isn't up to her elbows in clay, she enjoys gardening, bicycling, photography, and restoring her historic home where she lives with her partner, Matthew, and their four children.
