Ania is a London based ceramicist. Growing up in communist Poland, surrounded by stark grey concrete structures – brutal, imposing but unavoidable. Her work finds its foundations in that world, drawing from the rawness but seeking beauty in form and function. It’s an aesthetic born of opposites, where darkness meets light, rough meets smooth and drabness conceals drama.
Ania creates functional and decorative pieces inspired by contrasts and opposites. Working mainly in stoneware, she uses minimum decoration and allowing shapes and textures to take the lead. Her work is tactile, it must be touched as well as seen.
