Annie Peaker Inspired by her love for African culture, UK ceramicist Annie Peaker captures the beauty of African women in ceramic sculptures. Some of her figures are slightly elongated to emphasize the grace and elegance of the African female form
DAILY MUSE: Toni Foard, describes himself as an English potter, hand builds each female figure using white clay. Each sculpture is fired several times in sections and they all have a distinctively African feel to them. The color often comes from controlling the way the smoke penetrates the surfaces, in addition to glazes and lustres. His goal is for each slender figure to have ‘attitude’.
