MAG31 – Ceramic Vase

Artist / Maker: Anna-Marie Magson


Short vase with a squared oval profile with one slightly sloping side, decorated with sgraffito mid century design in natural, tan, blue, and black colours.

Anna-Marie hand-builds her pots using stoneware slabs and layers of coloured slips. The flattened surfaces of the vessels provide a canvas on which to work. Designs are created through the use of wax resist, revealing shapes and pattern with fine detail achieved by employing sgraffito. She uses a limited palette of colours, taking inspiration from mid-20th century art and design.

Anna-Marie works from her home studio in York
