Anne Hudson like many artists is influenced by the environment and brings that interest to her work. She has a Diploma of Ceramics from Otago Polytechnic and from there went on to study a Masters of Fine Arts (Ceramics) at the National Art School, Sydney. She has many years of experience with clay and a wide variety of skills and techniques to draw upon. She works from her urban studio in Auckland.
Hudson likes to consider how the vessel sits with philosophical concepts of existence, at the same enjoying the haptic pleasure of working with clay. Hudson firmly believes that a good object can sing, speak or give rise to narrative, ideas and concepts. The vessel is an abstract form with an infinite potential to express meaning while being an integral part of our existence.
