Anna studied ceramics at the Royal College of Art, worked in potteries in London and Oxford and taught Art in secondary schools. She now has her own studio practice where she creates ceramic sculptures that incorporate themes and motifs associated with the sea and the sea’s relationship with land. She is currently celebrating the ‘Year of the Sea’ alongside artists in South Wales and is working towards an installation for National Trust's Stackpole Walled Gardens in Pembrokeshire in August 2018.
Anna’s forms shift between symmetry on the wheel and organic development as she combines the processes of working with clay moulds, slabs and wheel-thrown pieces. Surfaces are rubbed with recycled clay dust and sand and daubed with earth-coloured slips. Details are honed by scratching, printing and the firing process.
