Antje Ernestus makes individual studio pots, mostly in porcelain, with fluid celadon and wood ash glazes with copper red highlights.

Form is important and is kept simple and strong, often altered from the round and slightly asymmetrical. Employing both throwing and hand building techniques, finger markings and soft texturing give the work a rich tactile quality.

Multiple glaze layers are used to build up visual and physical depth on the white porcelain forms, playing with varied crackle patterns and flow marks that make each piece unique after its firing.

Pots are fired in a gas kiln to 1300 degrees (reduction).

Born in 1958 near Cologne, Antje grew up in Germany. In the UK since 1986, she graduated from Camberwell School of Art, London, in 1993 and works from her studio in North Norfolk.

Antje exhibits widely in the UK and is a professional member of the CPA (Crafts Potters Association UK), London.

Visitors to the studio are welcome throughout the year, please telephone ahead to arrange a suitable time. Tel 01263 587672
