Antu-Made reflects the inventive, eminently practical and always unique vision of master artist, designer and creative director Anna Marks. For her, each piece is first conceived as a work of art. In the imagining, it becomes animated with almost life-like qualities before she translates the concept into a functional yet elegant object for the home.
“I have an emotional connection to the objects I create–a sensitivity and a compulsion to create pieces that connect to history and the present day through timeless design,” she says.
Anna Marks is fascinated with new technologies that allow her to express innovative interpretations of the Earth’s natural elements. Throughout her work and that of the Antu-Made team, metals are burnished to glow while retaining a rough-hewn quality. Rigorously selected rock and stone are cut with precision and presented to optimize their inherent beauty. Because each Antu-Made piece is hand-crafted, no two are exactly alike.
