About the Artist:
Anne Carnevale, the artist behind Carnevale Clay, believes an object tells a story.
Her work is inspired by functional objects that have been present throughout history- a cup, a plate, a spoon, a water jug... timeless, clean and simple. Traveling in the mediterranean as a child, Anne became acutely aware of the handmade in the region. Its architecture and artifacts awakened an artistic sensibility that has shaped her life & work.
Carnevale creates sculptural vessels that are, like the human figure, unique and one of a kind, changing from every view point. Art pieces that are made to be held and used. objects that aesthetically enhance the everyday moments of life. The vessels are coil hand sculpted, a technique that reaches into antiquity and predates throwing on a wheel. The simplicity of hand building artistically stands out in a world that is striving towards mathematical perfection- where the human imprint of the creative moment is hidden or lost.
For Anne, the imperfect line & the off-centered object is the art.
