"Nature is so perfect. It's just all there -- the formations, the caves, bones & stones. What I attempt to express is my love and reverence for the beauty of this earth. Clay is my language." -- Anne

Anne's work has graced the White House Christmas tree of Hilary Rodham Clinton, and has been featured on several television series.
Born in New York City, Anne's first profession was as a classical ballet dancer until illness ended a promising career. She married, moved to California, and enrolled in Anthropology at the University of California at Berkeley. In the 1970's she started working with clay, focusing on textured functional forms. In the '80's, her work took on increased sculptural aspects, which she continues to develop.
