Loewe Craft Prize finalist Annie Turner creates ceramic sculptures which are very closely linked with the River Deben in Suffolk and its surrounding environment where the artist grew up. Like with this wall hanging sculpture, Jetty, the river’s past and present, the cycles of nature and the interaction of man are at the heart of each encrusted sculptural form she creates. These are, as she puts it ‘objects that trigger the memory’, as much collective memory as personal recollection.
Annie trained at Bristol Polytechnic and the Royal College of Art and has exhibited widely both nationally and internationally and teaches at The City Lit.
Her work is in the permanent collections at the Shipley Art Gallery, The National Museum Of Wales, Cardiff, The State University Buffalo New York U.S.A, The Grainer Collection U.S.A, The Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge and The Victoria and Albert Museum.
In February 2019 Annie was one of shortlisted for the Loewe Craft Prize, she was one of the 29 artists chosen by a panel of nine experts from over 2500 submissions.
