Annie Turner is a well known ceramic sculptor living and working in Suffolk. She is inspired by natural fragments of fossilised sharks' teeth, feathers, general flotsam and jetsam collected from the banks of the River Deben where her family has lived for generations. Annie creates textured forms triggered by these objects and memories. Landscape, water, weather, and tide merge in Annie's sculptures. She explores movement in the river and tides, changing seasons and the passage of time. Her work is both fragile and strong, reflecting movement and restlessness in the natural landscape.
Annie studied Three Dimensional Design and Ceramics at Bristol Polytechnic, followed by an MA in Ceramics at the Royal College of Art.
Annie’s work has been widely exhibited, near her studio in Suffolk, London, and globally including at the European Triennial for Ceramics and Glass in Belgium. Her work can also be seen in permanent collections of the Victoria and Albert Museum and the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge.
She was shortlisted for the Loewe craft prize in July 2019 in Tokyo.
