ANNE FLØCHE (b. 1952)


"Anne FlÝche's work has a particular quality of movement. Her pots, mainly big dishes, bowls and bottles, are beautifully drawn, a freely expressive hand seen in bold and broad definition of form, depth and texture of glaze and an economic brush. These crawling pigments and lyrically abstracted motifs (such as coastal wading birds, fish and blossom trees) enrich the poetic charge of these pots and reveal a sensitive, gently humorous eye for the shapes and characters of the natural world. Her inspiration is markedly Eastern, but these objects relate as well to the ceramic history of Northern Europe, the Mediterranean, Turkey and Morocco. The result though is highly individual, a pottery of floating images - breezy evocations of time and place."
