Andrea Walsh creates exquisitely-crafted box and vessel forms that explore ideas of containment, materiality, preciousness and value. Working with glass in combination with bone china, she celebrates their shared material qualities of purity and translucency. Intimate in scale, and sometimes incorporating precious metal, her work evokes a response akin to jewellery, eliciting the desire to hold and cherish. Walsh has been shortlisted for the British Ceramics Biennial Award on three occasions, and was awarded The Craft Scotland Prize 2016.
