Anna Younie: Ceramic Vessels
A recent graduate from Gray’s School of Art, Younie presents a showcase of handbuilt stoneware ceramics inspired by the rugged, textured Orkney coastline.
Working with black stoneware clay and China clay slip Younie’s ceramics are inspired from the eroded patterns that surround Orkney’s coastline. The forms remain simple to mimic the eye-catching standing stone formations of Brodgar and Stenness. In contrast, the surface of her work is heavily textured to reference the weathered cliffs protecting the islands from the elements.
