Anita Harris Art Pottery
Anita Harris has a very impressive background in ceramics. Anita was head designer at Poole Pottery for 10 years from 1999 until 2002 when she left Poole to join Moorcrofts Cobridge Stoeware and Black Ryden. She brought with her an extensive knowledge in reactive glazes.
Anita has designed many successful ranges whilst at Poole Pottery for Liberty, John Lewis, Marks and Spencer's, Selfridges, Harrods, Bloomingdales, and Tiffany's New York to name but a few. In fact if you know about Poole Pottery you will know she was responsible for many of Pooles most successful designs fromm 1999 until the day she left . Two of the most well known and indeed the most popular are Volcano and gemstones. She continues to push the boundaries of glaze effects and lustres to constantly produce new designs and has an ever growing following of passionate collectors in the UK and overseas.
In 2009 Peter Anita's son joined the studio. Peter Harris has obviously inherited his mother's talent for design and innovation, he has shown that he has skills that are proving very useful in the application of glazes, spraying and air brushing. Abstract art plays a large part in Peter's work and collectors are eagerly lining up to purchase his work. His metal work, throwing and sculpting skills add another facet to this innovative little studio pottery .
