Description

A striking example of artist Alice Walton’s more recent experimentation, the monumental stature and shape of this contemporary sculpture takes its inspiration directly from the streets of London. This builds on her usual process, within which she translates the seemingly mundane urban objects seen on her daily commute into new abstract forms, drawing from memory in her studio and creating photographic collages.

In this case, Walton was inspired by the arches carved out of stone buildings in central London, particularly those on Clement’s Lane. Aiming to create a piece that paid homage to these structures, Walton was able to combine a fascination with urban forms with an inherent organic feeling, rooted in her traditional techniques and the natural materials used.

Moulded from white stoneware, the sculpture includes hand-crafted porcelain dotted texture detail in a vibrant yellow colour, complementing the stand-out nature of this piece. Its intensely tactile surface texture and unconventional technique enables Clement Lane to represent a new and intriguing way of working with porcelain clay, complementing the traditional vases, sculptures and tableware in our historic collection.

Signed by the artist to the underside, 'Alice Walton'.
