Based in Edinburgh, Andrea Walsh is an artist who's work is an exploration of the box and vessel form.
She explores ideas of containment, materiality, preciousness and value, through considered and exquisitely tactile objects which communicate with the viewer notably through their intimate scale. To create elegantly crafted, timeless and unique pieces, she uses a range of materials including ceramics, glass and metal.
"My work is an exploration of the box and vessel form, through which I am interested in ideas of containment, materiality, preciousness and value. Working with glass in combination with fine bone china, I seek to celebrate their shared material qualities including purity and translucency and am influenced by their alchemic nature and rich historical associations." — Andrea Walsh
