Andrea Walsh

Born 1974, Stockport, England

“I am intrigued by ideas of containment, materiality, preciousness and value, which I explore through the box and vessel form. My chosen palette of materials - ceramics, glass and metal - are connected by traditional casting and forming techniques, which I use to make unique objects that are considered, refined, and exquisitely tactile. Contemplating both the individual qualities and direct relationships of these ancient and alchemic materials, each piece reveals a subtle balance and purity of form, and communicates through an intimate scale where themes akin with jewellery prevail such as to hold and to cherish.”

“Walsh’s work seems the antithesis of the fleeting surfaces of contemporary life and yet the forms are free of the pastiche or anachronism of the self consciously crafted thing. They possess instead what the American art historian Keith Moxey describes as a vital heterochronicity – a capacity to unfold many timeworlds simultaneously through the precision and poetry of the forms.”
