Sam Walker

Biography

Sam's inspiration comes from her love of pattern and colour, and her artwork references textile construction. Although she did not go through any formal training, she spent a long time experimenting with techniques best suited to applying pattern to the surfaces of her pieces.?

Her work is made from flat slabs of clay. Coloured liquid clays, called slips, are applied to the surface before the slabs are constructed into their 3D forms.

Sam enjoys the imperfections this process brings, using the distressed surface as part of her aesthetic. Though she work with templates, the methods used ensure no two pieces will ever be exactly the same.

?

I try to approach my life with a sense of fun, and hope that this translates into my work.
