Ann Barnsley

Earth’s mud. Moist, musty, malleable. Rotating, spinning, rising into shape. An inner vision magically transforming into an outer artistic form. Whether functional or sculptural the masterpiece can be used or displayed, outlasting the creator, leaving the potters legacy behind until the end of time. My work reflects my devotion to clay over the past sixteen years. I am working with low fire terra cotta clay using multiple texture tools and techniques creating a tapestry effect on each vessel. Each piece is glazed on the inside for functionality and painted on the outside, presenting a vintage finish. Pit firing is also a passion. My pit fired pieces show the relationship between fire and clay. The reflection of spontaneous patterns from smoke, flame, and fumes make each pot a one of a kind art piece.
