Playing with translucency

  • • Anima makes very thin porcelain bowls with a shadow-effect
  • • She has been awarded many international prizes
  • • Her works are in museum collections across Europe

Anima Ross started studying ceramics at the art academy in Ghent. She recalls that, “In those days, working on the potter’s wheel was not offered at an academy of ‘arts’. So, to build up my throwing skills, I travelled to the south of France during the summer, going from village to village, from potter to potter.” Then, she started her own business, went on to teaching, and studied new techniques, becoming increasingly engrossed in porcelain. “For the last ten years I have only worked with porcelain. This ethereal and very demanding material is a challenge for every ceramicist. The pieces are thrown on the wheel, and the throwing must be done without hesitation. Corrections are not possible because porcelain has a ‘memory’: when you make a mistake, it will return after firing.

Light and shadows

This thrown porcelain bowl is decorated with slip relief motifs. Pots and dishes are familiar daily objects. By placing them in a new context, stripping them of their functionality by adding texture, colour and form, a dualistic feeling arises within the viewer, one of regonition yet alienation. The viewer has a new interpretation from the associations, which the object evokes.
