Ann Hitchcox throws functional pots on the wheel using a variety of clays.
Her bowls celebrate structure, texture and colour; the smooth or the rough, in many earthy hues and to the extremes of almost black and nearly white. By high firing the clay loses its porosity and becomes like stone; both visually and in strength. In contrast to this a simple pool or band of bright coloured glaze is added. Some shiny, some matt, usually bright and always contrasting.
