Anna Lambert makes hand built earthenware ceramics, using the domestic forms of bowls, jars and candlesticks to express her response to landscape and the progression of the seasons.


Using a range of techniques including altered clay slabs, modelling, slip and underglaze painting and various simple printmaking methods, Anna Lambert has developed her hand built forms to reflect a connection with her locality and to the fragile and constantly changing environment, responding to places as diverse as wild bleak moorland and bird-filled hedgerows. She also devotes time to lecturing, workshops and commissions and has won many awards, including a recent grant for the Arts – artist development. She has made significant contributions to featured publications.
