Light Grey Tall Collapsed Bowl is a precise wheel-thrown porcelain piece by ceramicist Olivia Walker, which incorporates paper-thin porcelain textures.

The Maker Olivia Walker Ceramicist - South West 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.
