Copenhagen-based ceramicist, Anne Black, is known for her handmade ceramics. Working hands-on with the clay (a trick she picked up studying ancient Chinese porcelain in school), Black quite literally puts her personal touch on each hand-thrown cup, vase, bowl, and jug. Though intended for everyday use, these minimalistic Scandinavian pieces double as objects d’art. More to love? Black has brought jobs, fair wages, and increased opportunity to Vietnam, where she runs a fair-trade based workshop, where 60 dedicated colleagues and craftsmen, produce her design, with meticulous skill, by hand, day by day.
