About the Work
“I didn’t expect to learn so much about ceramics when I moved to Whanganui, but through visiting Rick Rudd’s excellent Quartz Museum of Studio Ceramics, meeting the local potters and curating an object-based exhibition myself, I’ve gained an appreciation for the artform and made a move towards starting a ceramics collection of my own. This work was a fixture of workday life, as it sat in the office near a colleague’s desk. I love the simplicity of form and muted colours of this work and the other similar still life works by Ann in the collection, that take inspiration from the painter Giorgio Morandi. Ann throws humorous wildcards into these works too, such as adding a juice box to the arrangement.”
