Artist: Anna Silverton’s playful and delicate porcelain vases and bowls demonstrate a highly disciplined and controlled wheel-throwing technique. She is continually exploring forms and textures, seeking to achieve pieces which combine elegance with visual surprise.
After completing a BA at Camberwell School of Art and MA at The Royal College of Art, Anna spent several years in the States where she taught ceramics at Syracuse University alongside developing her own work. She now works at her studio at home in Sydenham, as well as working part-time at Morley College in London as Program Manager of the HND Ceramics course.
Description: Anna hand throws each piece in porcelain on the potter’s wheel, cutting, reassembling and reshaping some of the larger pieces. Stretching the physical properties of the materials she works with, Anna accentuates the form with the application of a mixed texture glaze in a lovely green.
