Anna Silverton

Anna is known for her finely wheel-thrown porcelain vases and bowls and her meticulous attention to detail. Having trained at Camberwell School of Art and the Royal College of Art, she spent time teaching in the US before returning to London. She established her ceramics workshop almost 30 years ago, which is now based in South London at her home in Sydenham.

Anna enjoys the inherently repetitive process of wheel-throwing but focuses on gradual renewal and reinvention of her forms, each piece is slightly different from the last. Appealingly tactile surfaces are punctuated by subtle differences in colour or texture. Glazes soften or highlight as they break over edges, connecting form and surface harmoniously.

Anna is also Program Manager of the new Higher Education HND Ceramics Course at Morley College London.
