Both Anne and Hans’ work have a roughness and an unpredictability of surface and colour that I really enjoy, both tactilely and visually. Both also having the surprise of intense colour and fine detail and the delight of crawling slip and glazes.
I had seen some of their work in Odd’s home and was very excited to be able to meet them and share a meal together. We were invited to visit for coffee and delicious homemade strawberry juice and were lucky enough to have a tour of their studios. We found it so good to see their work space and the inspiration they surrounded themselves with.
As I am an occasional ceramicist myself, working in collaboration under the name of Formed Function. I really enjoyed discussing our differing styles of firing, Anne fires once, FF fires twice and Hans thrice; and our experiences with the different kilns, they have made/designed theirs.
They both have great senses of humor and are so warm and kind and incredibly talented Artists. It has been a pleasure to get to know them.
