Anna's design practice is driven by the physical properties and emotional qualities of objects. She looks at the connection between function and pleasure, intimacy of the experiences and social rituals. Over the last few years she has been researching the culture of tea and coffee drinking, focusing on social aspects and modern urban life.
She creates tactile and functional objects that explore the notions of joy of everyday things. Her objects are minimalist, mostly white, sometimes coloured, and designed to enhance a usual coffee or tea taking provoking a meditative, slow and indulgent experience. As a bigger mission, through her objects, she tries to challenge seemingly increasing pace of modern urban life, by introducing a gentle come back to the rituals of food and drinks consumption. They are all about taking time to relax and enjoy the moment.
All Anna's pieces and made by hand starting with a sketch. All her glazes are hand mixed and developed in the studio. Her favourite materials are porcelain, stoneware clay and plaster.
