'Collapsed Triptych in Sand' is a unique wall-mounted sculptural artwork by the British artist, Olivia Walker. It has been created from coloured porcelain, tadelakt plaster and resin. The dimensions above are for the three panels.

Each section within the artwork starts with an inner core created from recycled PET foam (which is made of recycled plastic bottles and keeps the weight to a minimum) on to which a smooth skin of tadelakt plaster is added. This is then embedded with thousands of tiny shards of porcelain, each made my hand, fired, then added to the piece. Perfectly coloured matched, each surface seamlessly flows from the smooth to the undulating ridges.

Walker works in porcelain to create pieces that explore ideas of growth and decay through the construction and layering of complex surfaces. Many of her pieces are thrown and altered, often being cut away and reassembled in the leather-hard stage which allows her to deconstruct the form creating new surfaces on which to continue adding her porcelain layers.

The artist can also create pieces to commission, please contact the gallery for further information.
