Artist Statement


Olivia specialises in hand built sculptural ceramic forms. The idea behind this particular collection, working with the exhibition title ‘Swarm’, is to explore the many variations of form that showcase within the fungi species, spread throughout the world in silent and unseen swarms of fungal spores with the result of a large interconnecting network.
