Ararti bowl (32cm diameter) in porcelain
Anne Butler’s ‘Eclipse’ and ‘Ararti’ Series are inspired by the urban environment and the light and shadow cast by man-made architectural forms. The abstract marks of coloured parian porcelain are transferred onto thin sheets of porcelain that are then cut, layered, assembled and joined in a plaster mould. The translucent quality of Parian evidences this layering process and allows traces and shadows to be seen.
Many years spent in Asia and Japan has had a direct influence on Butler’s work. The Japanese aesthetics and sentiments regarding natural transience, distortion and fallibility of material and process are key concepts in her work.
