Taking inspiration from the natural beauty, architecture, and culture of countries she visits, Burbank, California-based ceramic artist Annie Quigley creates stunning hand-carved porcelain pieces.
Within weeks of first learning how to make pottery on the wheel, I began carving my work with a knife. My skills in both areas grew quickly but I needed to find distinctive patterns and designs for my work. Behold: my travel sketch book! My work is greatly inspired by trips to Europe, New Zealand, Uganda, America’s National Parks, and time spent living in tourist destinations: NYC and LA. The natural beauty, architecture, and culture of these destinations have made a big impact on me and on my work.Annie Quigley
