Olivia Walker

Her work plays within the space where the man-made and the natural intersect. she throws precise forms in porcelain before covering and submerging them in organic repetitive patterns, made up of individually applied shards of porcelain. These accretions are always different. They speak of organisms – fungus, coral, and bacteria - but are unidentifiable, growing over and eating up the form beneath. she is interested in the tension between the ordered and precise object – mechanically thrown and trimmed on the wheel, and the rough, mossy, textured growth upon it.
