Path and Inspiration Anna studied Fine Art at Newcastle University and the Akademie der Bildenden Kuenste, Munich; after graduating working freelance as an artist before embarking on the City Lit Contemporary Ceramics Diploma in 2013. A central theme in Anna's work is the rhythm of the natural world and its action on our man-made surroundings.
Her sculptures are characterised by their monumentality and painterly surfaces. Anna is interested in the narrative of clay artefacts and the notion of the unknown craftsman.
Process and Practice I am an artist ceramicist based in London. Influenced by how the natural and man-made environments co-exist and weave together, in my sculptures I hope people find a sense of calm.It starts with a drawing or an image in my mind, then building with coils, slabs or carving the clay, I create vessels by altering, trimming and mending as I go. It’s an instinctive way of working – fingerprints and incidental marks may sometimes remain in the finished works of art.
