A fascination in marks of erosion and an on-going exploration of tactile objects fuels the making of ceramic artist Anna Whitehouse.
Currently based in Harrogate, North Yorkshire, Anna's practice has evolved from growing up in the region and spending time outdoors. From scrambling over rocks in the Dales to scouring the beach for fossils near Whitby, these experiences can be seen echoed in her work.
A new collection of bottles has developed from recent beach-combing at Gullane beach near Edinburgh and Port Mulgrave near Whitby. Each looks like it has itís own story, like shipwrecked bottles- encrusted in broken barnacles and rust.
Ultimately Anna aims to create beautiful and intriguing objects that celebrate stolen moments of observation and inquisitiveness.
