Annie's Diary ...

The last few weeks have been very interesting for me with workshops in various places as well as at home. I have produced some jugs as a result of these and thought they might be of interest to some of you.

Both of them were inspired by looking at roman pottery.

I used various types of clay to produce the results and l am looking forward to developing the techniques l discovered while making the pieces.

The ‘ john jug’was influenced by the pots often adorned with faces in Roman times as well as the traditional toby jugs that were created in the last few centuries. It has been painted with underglaze colours with a clear glaze over the top.I used crackle glazes inside and on the handle to create quite a pleasing effect.
Commissions for toby jugs are always welcome if you are looking for a special present –as long as you can supply some photographs.

It obviously goes without saying that l work from animals as well as people!!!

The more traditional looking jug has been impressed with found objects to produce the design as there are no vine leaves available at this time of the year.
More news soon ...........

Contact me by email or telephone 01303 840665.

Look forward to hearing from you.

About Annie

You can see a film of me demonstrating some of my methods by clicking the picture link below.

Annie was born in 1956 in the heart of the Kentish countryside. She grew up loving her natural surroundings and always felt a dedication to creating Painting and Sculpture. After completing her A Levels she moved to London and gained a B.A. Honours Degree studying Fine Art and Photography at Ravensbourne College of Art and Design.

She then worked as a Specialist Pottery Painter in London and subsequently moved to Gloucestershire where she worked as an industrial potter, learning the skills of using commercial pottery equipment.

After pursuing a Post Graduate Course at Sussex University she taught Ceramics, Fine Art and Textiles in several schools.

After teaching for 15 years Annie felt the need to give her own work more dedication as well as offering a retreat for a few of the rejected animals living in local sanctuaries.

Annie’s Studio now sits in the heart of the Kentish countryside - an absolute haven of inspiration for her work.

She works mainly by commission and during the past ten years has worked on a variety of projects including large murals, ceramic sculptures, portraits, personalised pottery and highly decorated loo seats.

Annie is dedicated to producing work of a professional standard but is always ready to instigate some humour into a piece of seemingly serious work.

I am holding one day workshops during the Summer on request, so if you are thinking of booking a creative day - painting or ceramic sculpture - please do it soon as l do get fairly booked up.

Workshops can be for up to six people. Workshop time is £35 per hour plus £5 per person for materials and firing.

Minimum of two hours.

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to call or email me-
