Anne Butler trained in Ceramics in the University of Ulster and the University of Wales in Cardiff and now works from her studio in Northern Ireland. Her work has been widely exhibited in the UK and abroad and is held in national and international collections.
She works primarily with parian porcelain. Parian has a satin, marble-like quality when solid and a delicacy and translucency when thin. These material qualities, as well as a wide palette of techniques are continuously challenged in her work, in order to explore relationships between process, material and time.
