Biography: Anna French

Anna has spent 20 years working with textiles, but in 2000 dedicated her time to kiln formed glass.  All Anna’s work is designed and crafted in her Nottingham studio, creating textual elements suggesting movements and dynamism within the glass.  Although Anna works swiftly and decisively, the firing process means one piece can take two days to create.  Anna is influenced by landscapes, and her surroundings.  Although Nottingham based, Anna owns a second home in Marrakech where she also works with local artisans.
