Description 'Mori Mandi', contemporary ceramic sculpture by Alice Walton
British, 2018
Height 45cm, width 35cm, depth 35cm
Mori Mandi is one of the first pieces artist Alice Walton made using her ribboning technique. Here, hand-coloured porcelain clay pieces are individually joined and layered onto a hand-thrown form to create beautiful patterns and textures. Similarly to ‘Mirasi Lock’, the muted pastel colours take direct inspiration from Walton’s trip to Rajasthan in 2018, after she was awarded the Eduardo Paolozzi Travel Grant.
The form and shape of this piece incorporates her fascination with mundane and familiar street objects, passed by in our everyday lives. When walking or cycling to her studio, Walton pays close attention to her surroundings, peeping through dividing fences and looking at building work on new developments. Taking note of the piles of rubble, new pipe work and concrete bollards, such shapes and forms are then translated into drawings, which she then combines with photography to form the backbone of inspiration for her work. This piece therefore represents her fascination with considering the everyday and re-evaluating them to form new abstract languages. The literal street representation is transformed by her muted colour palette and the unconventional techniques used to create strata-like surfaces.
In February 2020, Mori Mandi was featured on the cover of Crafts magazine (issue 282), showcasing the piece to an international audience, and underlying the regard in which it is viewed by leading commentators in the field of contemporary craft.
