Anna's conceptual interest lies in food and the way we eat it, in particular the rituals around celebrational or indulgent treats. Her current research into ice-cream looks at the momentary, yet memorable quality of the treat, evoking our memories of sensations and tastes as well as our fantasies of a desired indulgence. Her inspiration begins with her materials and making best use of their properties. The dry translucency of high fired porcelain suits the biscuit texture of wafers and ice-cream cones while the colourful liquidity of a silky opaque earthenware glaze is used to capture the quality of dripping ice-cream. Her aim is to combine techniques to create a 'visual edibility' to her work that inspires the viewer to imagine different tastes.
Graduating from Bath Spa University with a degree in ceramics in 2005, Anna found employment almost immediately assisting ceramicists Kate Malone and Sue Binns. Anna manages to continue work on her own practice after hours, experimenting with and developing her ideas tirelessly. She exhibits across London and the South West and more recently in Singapore.
