Anna-Marie Magson

I hand build my pots using slabs of an earthenware/stoneware mix and decorate with layers of coloured slips. The flattened surfaces of the vessels provide a canvas on which to work. I create fine detail by revealing shapes, lines, and marks through wax resist and sgraffito. I use a limited, muted palette of colours and a satin glaze to give a tactile, silky finish. I find inspiration in ancient structures, their weathered surfaces and the evidence of human mark-making alongside 20thC abstract art and sculpture
