Alison Britton’s ceramic works are hand-built using slabs of clay, rather than thrown on the wheel; she takes domestic, functional vessels as a starting point but transforms them into expressive, sculptural objects with painterly surface decoration, as represented in this work in the Warwick collection.

Purchased for the University of Warwick Art Collection by the Friends of the Mead Gallery.
