James, Anne


I am a ceramic artist creating both functional and decorative work that is greatly
influenced by my childhood home in rural Scotland. Working mostly in porcelain,
the challenge of construction is what I enjoy. The texture is important to me. I use
treasures found on my travels and wallpapers from my family home to create
layers of varying texture. I love to collect sea glass, which I incorporate into my
vases and bowls. My jewellery and a range of hanging decorations are
embossed with printing blocks and wallpapers. I like to explore the effects of
layering glazes, and my love of gardening is reflected in the bright colours of my
one-off vases and bowls
