Katie Walker studied at the Royal College of Art and has always had a fine art approach to her furniture.
Since 1994, Katie’s designs have been recognised with many awards and pieces can be found in public galleries and private collections worldwide.
Her works range from the light, witty Weight & See cheval mirror through commercial commissions to art-based sculptural pieces such as the Winged seat. Collaborations with other workshops brought the opportunity to work with a number of retailers, designing pieces for their ranges. These clients include Gaze Burvill, Benchmark Furniture, Heals and John Lewis plc.
Katie was the winner of ‘Innovation’ and ‘Furniture’ Wood Awards in 2006 for the Ribbon rocking chair, ‘Furniture’ Wood Award in 2011 for the Windsor rocker. She was also awarded a Design Guild Mark, no. 101 in 2014 by The Worshipful Company of Furniture Makers, the City of London Livery Company and has received 7 “Bespoke Guildmarks” from the Furnituremakers Company.
Katie has been showing with jaggedart since 2019.
