Anne Butler

I combine ceramics and textiles to create my designs. Some of my ceramics are handmade with embroidery added.

I have a longstanding interest in textiles and embroidery. I then did a mosaic course and decided I wanted to combine the two crafts. I also make pottery pieces using different coloured clays to create interesting effects. I then photograph and enlarge areas of the pot and print the design onto fabric. I embroider into this fabric and then include the ceramic piece to finish the design. Other designs use glass and ceramic tiles with embroidered elements.
