A beautiful range of Handbuilt and Slipcast Contemporary ceramics decorated with unique Gum bichromate Photography.

Kit Anderson is the artist behind Foto Ceramica and works from her Nottingham studio where she makes a range of Hand-built and Slip-cast vessels, wall pieces, planters and jewellery. Each piece is decorated using her uniquely modified photographic Gum Bichromate process which exposes her original photographs directly onto the ceramic surface. Her images capture her love of landscape, and in particular birds and botanicals and each has a distinctive and unusual narrative quality.
Kit set up Foto Ceramica in 2006, bringing both her two areas of artistic practice together. She is a Fellow of Design Nation, and exhibits widely in the UK.
I work between my home studio and the new Nottingham Ceramic School at the Hartley Business Centre. I set up the larger teaching studio to give me more space and access to larger Kilns in order to make bigger scale work, but also to offer a range of courses for aspiring potters.
I hand build larger vessels, wall pieces and jewellery, but mostly use Slipcasting to make the smaller vessels.
KIT ANDERSON – WORK
My work is distinctive because I use the photographic Gum Bichromate process to decorate my work. I take Photographs of landscapes, bird and botanicals which are exposed directly onto the ceramic surface. My vessels and wall pieces have a narrative feel.
