Recreating the everyday in clay

  • • Alice constantly feels the desire to make
  • • She enjoys using traditional techniques in unconventional ways
  • • She feels only your imagination restricts the possibilities of clay

Growing up in a creative household with a textile designer mother, Alice Walton realised from an early age that she wanted to work in an artistic field. Since discovering the neverending possibilities of clay on her foundation course at Wimbledon School of Art, she is now dedicated to this medium and loves experimenting with colours and textures. In a world that is increasingly changing minute by minute she attempts to slow down, allowing her work to steadily evolve, brick by brick, pin mark by pin mark.

Pushkarna

This piece is made by pinpricking the base over and over again. The viewer’s eye cannot focus on the surface of clay allowing them to question the material. The top is made from thousands of tiny circles of liquid-porcelain dotted and repeated over the sculpture. In a world that is increasingly changing, minute by minute Alice attempts to slow it down and allow her sculptures the time to evolve.

Mori Pali

This porcelain sculpture shows Alice’s first encounter with her investigation into the journey, place, mapping and contour of lines. One line of porcelain effects the placement of the next and that effects the next. Cause and consequence are at the heart of this colourful decoration.

Fountain Rishi and Fountain Kali

These two ceramic sculptures explore a making process that Alice has been developing over the past two years. It combines porcelain with glaze to fuse and transform a dot or pixel or repetitive marks into a free-standing reimagined form.
