Anima Roos’ porcelain vessels are each unique, thrown on a wheel and hand painted with leafy foliage in deeply pigmented blacks and blues. The functional bowls are further adorned with screen-printed koi fish transfers.
During the making, the game between light and dark, movement and rest, open-/closeness, is very important. Playing with traditional forms and actual techniques, I am searching for a balance. The spectator adds a concrete story to it. Lines, forms and ideas, preferably in movement… it all remains a tightrope walk. The interaction between what I intend to make, and what others see in it is seldom a contradiction, usually an enrichment.
