Anna-Marie Magson

Anna-Marie originally studied Fine Art Painting at Liverpool College of Art. She began to explore her love of surface decoration and textured pattern on clay tiles. Ultimately, this led to adapting her ideas to hand-built ceramic vessels. Initially setting up her studio in Liverpool with a partner, producing mainly domestic-ware, Anna-Marie has since moved to York, continuing the development of her practice.

She hand-builds her pots using stoneware slabs and layers of coloured slips. Designs are created using wax resist, revealing shapes and pattern. Fine detail is achieved by employing sgraffito. She uses a limited palette of colours, taking inspiration from mid-20th century art and design.

Inspired initially by ancient cultures and natural forms, the subdued colours and abstracted shapes reflect those seen in her pottery.
