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).
Annie Woodford studied Ceramics and Glass at the Royal College of Art, where she received a travel scholarship. Since then, Woodford's work has been exhibited internationally and is included in private and public collections worldwide.

Art Room 59 newly opened in autumn 2005 and is situated on the outskirts of Dunfermline town centre. The Gallery provides a showcase for Scottish artists, craftspeople and designers, many of whom are local to Dunfermline and Fife.
