Making use of an everyday object memorable occurrence is essential to Olivia's work. She handbuilds a range of tableware and decorative vessels using stoneware clay and leaves the marks of her making visible to show the story of her process on the finished surface.
Each piece is completely unique and includes the finger marks and palmar creases from her hands. These are accentuated by the semi-transparent glaze and many are finished with elements that reference her drawings.
When constructing these pieces she hopes that they become something more than the sum of their component parts; objects which can be admired but most importantly used.
