Anna Donovan  is a mixed media ceramic sculptor who draws inspiration from Greek Mythology for this latest collection of work.  In a twist to the usual depictions of some of the more monstrous creatures from Greek mythology, Anna has chosen to try to see it from the misunderstood creatures angle by attempting to empathise with their situation.


“With humour, skill and wit, Anna has produced hand built mixed media ceramic sculptures with character and personality beyond their usual representations. Bad hair days for gorgon sisters, merry go round centaurs and a powerful Minotaur which looks particularly sensitive and a little depressed! Although there is certainly humour in the pieces the use of wire, nails, old jewellery and other found objects alongside the wonderfully formed ceramic bodies retains a certain dark or edgy undertone to the work.  It is this play which makes the pieces so memorable, distinctive and full of character.” Karen Sherwood, Director
