Anne James has been a member of The Gloucestershire Guild of Craftsmen since 1965 and has recently been awarded Life Membership. Anne is also a Fellow of the Craft Potters Association.
During this showcase there will be work for sale from her recent collection which demonstrates how Anne has refined her work with burnished lustered Raku. The show will also reflect on what has come before, with pieces from Anne’s archive.
Anne’s work has always been based around materials and process, aiming to create pleasing forms and satisfying surfaces with depth and richness of colour always an important factor. Ideas are, from many and varied sources. She has always kept sketchbooks, taken photographs and looked at the work of other artists and craftsmen, constantly pushing and developing her skills as a potter.
