Flora Wallace

Flora Wallace is a London-based ceramicist, specialising in functional porcelain sculptures. After Flora worked as an apprentice to Spanish sculptor Christobal Martin in the mountains west of Madrid, she graduated from Brighton University with a BA in 3D Design and Material Practice specialising in ceramics. Her adventurous spirit stems from her childhood in Dorset, where she spent most of her time outside and at night would use candle light to find her way. As such, Flora has a keen interest in nature, light and shadow. Her pieces are inspired by observing natural forms, and the different perceptual experiences of animals, plants and fungi.

THE PROCESS

Inspired by fish and water creatures, Flora’s pieces are made through a range of hand-building techniques including pinching, coiling and mould processes. Etching the pattern into the surface of the porcelain, Flora plays with thickness and translucency, allowing for different variations of light to permeate through the material and bring it to life. Her ability to capture movement in her porcelain pieces also contributes an ethereal quality, akin to sealife gliding through water. Each piece is hand painted with a mixture of oxides and applied with a painterly quality.

  

Maker's Quote

I make hand built ceramics as I love the uneven textures that can be left by the hand, and the way that it reveals the process by which it is made.
