£310.00 PRODUCT CODE:AF315Y51
Collaged wall piece inspired by the Sussex coast and the riches of the tide line, incorporating remnants of discarded objects and eroding flotsam. This piece is constructed with stoneware clay, porcelain, enamel, iron and wood.
Please note: This piece has old woodworm holes in the wooden mount. However, Annabel confirms that despite there having never been evidence of woodworm, she has treated it several times over a period of years and can guarantee that it is free of live insects.
About this maker
Annabel was born in Germany and spent several years of her childhood in Egypt before coming to England in 1956. She discovered clay at Farnham Art School on Saturday morning classes in the early 1960s. After leaving school in 1967, she attended Winchester Art School, where she was introduced to conceptual art and concrete poetry, and then Croydon College of Art. She went on to gain a BA(Hons) in Sociology and a PhD in Lesbian History at Essex University, then introduced and taught Lesbian Studies at Birkbeck College for two years. In her early 40s, she returned to her first love of clay, as one of the initial students on the City Lit Ceramics Diploma course in 1989.
