Materials: High-fired, oxidised Porcelain and glaze with a dolomite base.
Method: Wheel-thrown, finished using sharp tools. The bases are polished with diamond pads.
Care instructions: Fully waterproof, can be washed with soap and water and dried with a lint-free cloth. Edges and bases should be treated carefully, avoiding taps and ceramic basins for example.
Anna hand throws each piece in porcelain on the potter’s wheel, cutting, reassembling and reshaping some of the larger pieces. Stretching the physical properties of the materials she works with, Anna accentuates each form with precise carved lines that delineate the segments.
