Anne Goldman

Anne Goldman was born in New York City and studied Anthropology at University of California Berkeley. In the 1970’s she began working in clay and by the 80’s had developed her highly sculptural style. Each sculpted vessel is a lengthy undertaking. She begins with a thrown form which she adds thickness too for her textural musings. She has to be careful to apply her extra layers carefully, and dry each piece very slowly as to avoid peeling, splitting, or cracking and the dreaded explosion of piece during firing.

Despite Anne Goldman’s lack of a more modern online presence her ceramics are quite compelling and highly sought after. She has an immense list of galleries, commissions and collectors. Her deeply textural works are composed of imagery of the world around us. Her work evokes landforms, coral, and the process of weathering upon landscapes and formations. If you know me at all, you understand why I was drawn to her work.
