Crafting precise forms to resemble organisms, these unique tea bowls bowls harmoniously combine the man-made with nature. Using porcelain for its inherent qualities of purity and simplicity, Olivia covers her precise, wheel thrown pieces in hand built paper-thin porcelain textures.
Dimensions: Height: 8cm
Care Instructions: Dusted or washed in hot water.
Inspired by the organic objects and material contrasts, each bowl is unique, exploring materiality and form. Olivia sees the beauty in decay and is largely inspired by the natural world ‚Äì by fungus, coral, bacteria, and the way in which it grows and multiplies.
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.
