Alison Frith — 'Pillar Candleholder Set' in Blush Crackle
In her latest body of work, Melbourne-based ceramic artist Alison Frith explores the tensions between form and function. Determined to give both equal consideration, Frith uses wheel-throwing techniques to create pieces that are simultaneously sculptural and functional. Each one is carefully designed to fulfil a purpose while also serving as a standalone sculpture.
