Anja Lubach's work explores the smooth, translucent and pure material properties of porcelain, through experimental manipulation of the soft clay surface. Figurative details are taken from religious figurines, the human body and ornamental surfaces. These are then transferred as delicate 3D relief back onto the wheel thrown vessel walls, appearing to push through the surface of the vessels with a sense of animation and metamorphosis.
The textures and forms are evocative and the viewer will create their own narrative, depending on personal memory and imagination. Recently ceramic transfers are used to add splashes of colour and enhance the 3D relief.
Visits to the studio are by appointment only.
