Alice Walton (born 1987) is a British ceramic artist whose intriguing labyrinthine forms have attracted international acclaim. With a forensic eye, Walton translates the seemingly familiar into highly complex and multi-layered porcelain objects. Despite featuring intensely textured surfaces and complex colors, Walton’s work is also recognized for its meditative qualities. It is this tension between the repetitive and experimental, the calm and the kinetic that make her objects so compelling.
Her desire to stave off our digital riddled and splintered multi-realities is remedied through a process of intensely tactile moulding technique. Deliberately contemplative, her work creates a time capsule of discovery for the viewer with its intricately detailed markings drawing them in.
