Ceramics celebration for artist Louise at VG&M

Ceramics artist Louise Waller is celebrating two decades of her creative practice with a new free exhibition in Liverpool.

Louise Waller – 20 Years of Clay, at the Victoria Gallery & Museum, features more than 20 newly-created ceramic pieces including vases, jugs and household items which explore the relationship between functional objects and decorative art.

The show is part of the 2023 Independents Biennial.

Waller, who grew up in Sheffield, studied at Liverpool Hope, graduating in 2003 with a BA in 3D design, and gained an MA in Ceramics in 2007. She is a studio member at Baltic Clay and juggles her artistic practice with teaching and working in venues including Tate Liverpool.

Recent projects include working with the Prescot community to create 360 Elizabethan-style money boxes on show at Shakespeare North Playhouse.

Her work is inspired by artists like Antony Gormley and Richard Wentworth, as well as the minimalist and Art Deco movements.

Waller said: “Since graduating in 2003, my skills have grown and I’m now able to realise the more ambitious designs I wouldn’t have been able to make back then.

“When approaching this exhibition, I looked back at old sketch books and used them as a springboard for inspiration.

“I’m honoured to be given this opportunity to display my work at the Victoria Gallery & Museum and reflect on my career so far.”

Louise Waller – 20 Years of Clay is at the Victoria Gallery & Museum in Ashton Street from June 24 to the end of the year.
