Grey Nest Tea Bowl I by Olivia Walker is a precise, wheel thrown piece, incorporating hand-built paper-thin porcelain textures. Olivia has developed a distinct technique, focused on crafting precise forms to resemble organisms. Her unique bowls harmoniously combine the man-made with nature.
Dimensions: Height: 6cm, Width: 12cm, Depth: 12cm
Care Instructions: Dusted or washed in hot water
Olivia creates each piece by applying hundreds of individual shards of clay to a bowl that has been first thrown on the wheel. Starting from a set point, she lets these shards wrap around the piece, creating a defined, textured surface.
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.
