Anne Black is a Copenhagen-based ceramicist devoted to applied arts and craftsmanship. Her excitement towards working hands-on with the clay was initially inspired by studying ancient Chinese porcelain in school. Originating from the Scandinavian design tradition, Black creates functional, timeless design in her studio on Vesterbro in Copenhagen. There, she pursues all of her design and product development as well as collaborations and a limited production of one-off pieces.
In 2005, Black expanded beyond her own studio in Denmark and created a larger studio in the north of Vietnam. There, she works closely with skilled artisans with whom she exchanges ideas, knowledge, and inspiration. Today, the facility is an environmentally sustainable factory which produces Black's porcelain designs by hand on a daily basis.
