Anna Lambert makes slab-built earthenware ceramics with painted slips.
Each piece develops during the making, using drawing in the landscape as a starting point.
Fine pliable sheets of clay are assembled then altered and fettled. They are painted with multiple layers of coloured slips, often with darker underpainting, further layers of stencil work, and sgraffitto, then fired to 1090ºC.
Ideas reflect an interest in place, exploring narratives relating to changes in farmland and regeneration of orchards, combining drawing with the abstract qualities of pots.
Anna is a nationally recognised full-time maker since 1980.
