Anne Masters

“I think about ceramics all day and all night - hence AM PM Ceramics - the name of my practice. It's also my potters mark Anne Masters Potters Mark which goes onto every piece I design and make in my studio in the leafy suburb of Watson, Canberra. The clay I primarily work with is Australian porcelain - Southern Ice. It's a vivid white and has translucence qualities when made in finer use. My recent work has been the exploration of birds in our backyards/neighbourhoods. I make small, hand held birds slipcast and pierced with a pattern. I also make small dishes glazed in a soft celadon pale green and bespoke jewellery.”
