"Hand-formed Porcelain Wall and Tabletop Sculptures"
It was just eight years ago that interior design and architecture writer and author, Anna Kasabian introduced her handmade porcelain tabletop and wall sculptures.
A direct extension of her writing about homes that are beautiful, comfortable and authentic, her one-of-a-kind creations bring distinctive art forms to the home and public spaces.

Each piece is formed in her hand without a wheel and is hand- glazed. Her signature shapes recall the characteristics of flower petals and blooms and ocean waves. Each is hand-glazed in snow white, high gloss glaze.
Q&A

What is your favorite material to work with?

"I remember walking down Charles Street in Boston and looking in the window of E R Butler & Co. and seeing tiny porcelain sculptures, maybe one inch high. That stuck with me; I wanted more than anything to create porcelain walls as thin as a butterfly wing. From the moment I made my first porcelain object I knew I found my life in ceramics."

Q&A

What do you want people to do or feel when they encounter your creations?

"I hope that the enormous joy I experience in creating a sculpture radiates, provides a momentary escape from the day, and lifts people's spirits."

Q&A

What motivates and inspires you?

"I do my best work living a quiet, uncomplicated life. I live in a beautiful area called Cape Ann where the ocean is nearby. The rocky shoreline, quiet harbors beautiful old New England architecture, and gardens enrich my artistic soul. Taking a long walk with my Golden Retriever Amos is the happiest way I start my work day."

Q&A

What makes a space special?

"I've been writing about interior design and architecture for many years, and to me, you have to have the perfect marriage of both to make a space truly special. My work--abstract shapes with no straight lines-- set in contemporary public spaces where clean and serene are design themes, provides an interesting contrast."

Q&A

What’s unique about your work?

"Each of my pieces, whether a tabletop or wall sculpture, share a visual energy from flared, rising and turned edges that are thin and delicate looking. This is really what I work at with each piece of clay. Because I do this with my hands as opposed to a wheel, I get to know each piece of clay intimately and work with its potential to become something unusual. The visual themes of florals and the sea unite by body of work."

Q&A

How do your pieces come to life? Tell us one interesting thing about your creative process?

"People have asked me how I come up with a particular piece. Actually, I don't plan anything other than thinking I'll create a tabletop or wall sculpture. I may take an ounce or eight pounds of clay and begin working with it... and pretty quickly, the clay reveals itself. It may allow me to twist it a certain way, or not--and I adjust accordingly. So in a sense, which I don't believe anyone thinks about, the particular piece of clay participates in what art form will come. I glaze all my work in white, mostly high gloss and I feel this allows the form to be the star. Light plays off the white in very interesting ways, and that is actually what many people comment on..."
