Alice Walton (b.1987) is currently working towards a Masters in Ceramics from the Royal College of Art and has completed an Undergraduate BA(Hons) Degree from the University of Brighton in which she was awarded a Distinction in Wood, Metal, Ceramics, and Plastics. Alice has exhibited her work across the UK and Europe including the V&A Museum, Tate Modern, Made London, Chatillion Festival and been selected to take part in UK Young Artist. She has been an artist in residence during the European Ceramic Context in Denmark, graduate residence at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London and summer resident in Centola Pottery, Italy. In 2017 she was awarded the Sir Eduardo Paolozzi Travel Scholarship.
Alice makes one-off original ceramics, exploring complex and intense surface textures over simple forms which have been inspired by street furniture and architecture. She uses a landscape of objects, formed from individual components to create abstract scenes. The repetitive nature of mark-making mimics the constant review of certain objects on daily commutes. To reference, she combines collaged photography and drawing from memory which is bought into the studio to work from. This takes her work away from the literal street inspiration and into an imaginary collection of objects.
