Olivia Rushin

Festival: 2016

I am a ceramic artist combining concept with found objects and craft techniques. I find the inspiration for my work within my own memory, revisiting past experiences that have informed my identity. They provide me with a narrative, discovered through poetry, combining reality with fantasy. Landslide is a collection, inspired by the destruction of my first home and the imagination of a child. The cloud plate formation takes on the familiar image of the willow pattern, a tree that still remains on the site, whilst the installation presents the discovery of a utopian fantasy, made up of found and handmade objects.
