Sink Holes

19th September 2013

I love the work of Liliana Ovalle and am always delighted to see what unique materials and colours she comes up with so was delighted to receive her invite to her latest project 'Sink Holes' as part of the Grandmateria III at Gallery Libby Sellers during London Design Festival.

Today I got to see the exhibition where Ovalle's work is nestled amongst Lex Pott and the prolific Peter Marigold who's work was scattered around many locations of design week.

Textural, dark and questioning the 'Sink Holes' explore extinction and indigenous heritage.

Always exploring the missing or the incomplete in her work her 'Sink Holes' project goes back to her roots of Mexico where she collaborated with Colectivo 1050 in order to learn from their ancestral ceramic techniques. Each of the vessels are a representation of the geological phenomena of sinkholes which highlights the control that nature has over us.
