Alice Walton is a British ceramic sculptor whose work has attracted international recognition. At the 2019 British Ceramics Biennial, Walton was awarded the ‘Fresh’ Wedgwood Prize for her use of coloured porcelain to create highly complex and multi-layered objects. During her residency Walton developed a new range of works which re-imagine Wedgwood’s iconic shapes using traditional jasper clay. Find them on display in the V&A Wedgwood Collection.
