About the teacher
Anna is a ceramic sculptor whose focus lies in the creation of anthropomorphic creatures that blur the boundaries of human, animal and machine. Her contemporary sculptures embody human characteristics, each with their own personality. They are cartoon-like, comical and playful. In 2015 she graduated from the ANU with a Bachelor of Visual Arts in Ceramics and in 2016 was awarded a residency with Canberra Potters and started working with us shortly after.
