Anne Goldman’s ceramics stop gallery clients in their tracks. Some are convinced that they are carved from coral outcroppings or canyon walls. An ceramics artist for the last twenty years, her work has been shown in galleries, museums and private collections from the White House to U.S. embassies around the world.
The work requires multiple steps requiring up to several weeks. Made of stoneware clays, each piece is handbuilt and sculpted with an eclectic collection of tools. After completely drying for as long as several weeks, the vessels are bisque fired and then treated with various clays, slips, and glazes. The final firing is a four-day process.
