Birth Mark Pot in Stoneware by Anna Gleeson.

Anna Gleeson’s ceramic practice is connected to punk rock: taking all that’s ugly and unlovable about oneself and putting it up there for all to see; her vessels hold broken dreams and failed attempts among other things.

“I’m interested in vessels because they have an inside and an outside; a hole, an edge and a rim. I like the way they can stand in for the figure; seeming to have ankles, hips, arms, lips, ears and an attitude. I have been drawing vessels I find in museums for years; I like the way they communicate across culture and time. Looking at an ancient Mesopotamian pot in the Louvre I think, I know what you mean. I know how to handle it and what I might use it for; it has an obvious relationship to the body. The paintings and prints of vessels here are my reading of that language. Or maybe a kind of fan art,” says Gleeson.
