Hi! I'm Anna - the maker of The Eclective, based in Armidale NSW.
I make porcelain & ceramic earrings & jewellery. I think of ceramics as 'slow made' - mostly because there can be no rushing any stage of the making process! Clay has to be at just the right moisture level to work with it, the first firing takes eight-ish hours to fire, glazing and decorating must be done patiently and precisely (or they'll ruin shelves in the next firing), second firing takes up to twelve hours, then sanding and finishing, before being made into earrings or jewellery.
Through this process, beautiful porcelain clay is transformed into a range of geometric and organic shapes, with a colour palette ranging from minimalist white and jet black, to night sky navy, electric blue and striking mustard yellow. Simple and understated design is the focus of my work.
