A unique ceramic bowl.

Olivia Walker’s current work explores organic and decaying forms through the build-up of complex surfaces. From her studio in Dartmoor, she makes initial forms on the potter’s wheel before deconstructing them and building upon them with thousands of shards of porcelain. Many of her vessels are thrown and altered – they are cut away and reassembled in the leather-hard stage which allows her to deconstruct the form of the bowl and then build up a surface on this new form. Walker starts from a set point on a bowl, and lets these organic accretions spread out and grow – “eating through”, or growing over the form beneath. They make reference to organisms such as coral and fungus, but remain abstract.
