I make contemporary jewellery in predominately precious materials. My influences include japanese textiles and architecture and I use enamel, gemstones, paper, felt, porcelain and gold leaf to create contrasting colour.
I produce handmade earthenware ceramics including functional and decorative tableware as well as ceramic jewellery with detailed leather and knot work. I experiment a lot with texture and multi layer glazing to produce interesting surface decoration. Pieces are either wheel thrown or hand built and are fired in an electric kiln. Every piece is carefully considered and individually crafted.
I work with fibre, using many textile techniques - weaving, netting, knotting, coiling etc, into woven tapestries, 3-D sculptural forms and small decorative baskets. I also make paper which is made into books, and combined with other natural materials and fibres to make constructed textile pieces.
My work is all ceramic stoneware mostly useable items, but also decorative items. They are all reasonably priced.
My work is primarily in porcelain or paperclay used for murals and wall panels and fired to a high temperature. Colour and pattern is important using a variety of decorating methods. The feeling is contemporary, abstract. Some murals also include areas of textured relief.
Anne is a designer and maker of hand built ceramics mainly working in porcelain.
Her ceramics are a personal and permanent response to places and the moments of randomness and impermanence that take place in them; often starting with a walk and including printing and writing haiku.
She is interested in collaborations, residencies and commissions.
Anne lives in Portknockie, a small coastal village in the North East of Scotland, where she hand crafts made-to-order little artworks ranging in price from £3 to £30 (plus p+p, based on standard first class post).
