Anne John

Charleston, SC

Decorative and functional art pieces; wheel thrown from porcelain and stoneware clay bodies. Anne distinguishes her work with the addition of finely detailed decorative elements, such as realistic hand sculpted birds, organic forming and shaping, and precise placement of glaze applications. Her pieces are fired in a reduction gas kiln, which takes the oxygen out of the air inside the kiln and allows her to achieve vibrant hues in her red and shino glazes.

In addition to being a member of Charleston Crafts, Anne John is a co-owner and instructor at Cone 10, a working clay studio on Upper Meeting Street in Charleston.
