Anna Bingham LSDC
Making and drawing are at the centre of Anna’s practice; the forms grow from a core fascination with hand building and painting. Starting with slabs and coils of stoneware clay, vessels are constructed, which are then painted using vitreous slips and fired repeatedly. Working instinctively – the incidental marks that occur at this time can direct the making process.
Recent works appear bleached out and weather worn; resembling corroded stone and metal - distillations of the way materials degrade, and how time and landscape can become part of objects. Themes include nature and human industry.
Anna's work has been exhibited nationally and internationally in London at Morley Gallery and the Zetter Hotel, New Designers, Klay London and Innovations in Ceramic Art in Cambridge. As a finalist in the International Open to Art Competition 2017, her work was shown at the Officine Saffi Gallery in Milan. Alongside her practice Anna teaches classes in ceramics and drawing, her primary work is ceramic vessels, wall panels and drawings on paper. She is a member of WhiteNoiseProjects.
