Alice Walton works with coloured clay, aiming to highlight the meditative process of the material, and her sculptural and abstract forms explore complex and intense surface textures. Her work is about a consideration of the everyday and taking the time to notice the unseen things in our environment. Her latest work incorporates her fascination for noticing common street objects, passed by in our everyday lives. She investigates how they can transcend into unusual and extraordinary objects, which form a new abstract landscape.
