Adam Landman and Anne Pärtna (Blue Hen Pottery)
About the Artist
Blue Hen Pottery is the partnership of Adam Landman and Anne Pärtna.
Adam loves to work in the low fire range, but currently makes use of the wood kiln to finish his wares. Child like drawings in themes of monsters, storms and conflicts are used as metaphors in narrative paintings on plates, platters and cups.
Anne prefers the volatile atmosphere of wood firing, using salt and simple glazes to bring the surfaces of her wide range of forms to life. Delicate line drawings on cups, plates and covered jars and hand-built sculptural vessels are touched many times in multiple steps of forming, shaping, finishing, drawing and slip painting.
