Olivia covers her precise wheel-thrown porcelain vessel in hundreds of individual shards of clay. Starting from a set point, she lets the shards wrap around the piece, creating a defined and tactile surface.

The Maker Olivia Walker Ceramicist - South East England

Olivia Walker is fascinated with the intersection between the man-made and natural. Using porcelain, she throws precise forms, then covers them in paper-thin accretions. These organic, lichen-like growths speak of organisms - fungus, coral and bacteria - growing over and devouring the form beneath. Olivia Walker’s current body of work looks at the fine line between growth and decay. Her work is held in both public and private collections throughout the UK and worldwide.
