SO MINT! Coloured Porcelain by Alice Walton

Royal College of Art, London

SO MINT! is a series of posts on fresh graduates in fashion, jewellery and design from around the world. Handpicked by Current Obsession.

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.
