Ever since taking a step back from Apparatus, the ceramic artist has been crafting sculptural vessels called “piccolos” that resemble anthropomorphic sky-grazing creatures. Assembled from wheel-thrown elements in stoneware, each vessel’s circular openings serve as the point of origin for each piece’s distinct personality, which Anderson deepens through a meditative, hours-long process of painting reverberating lines with lustre and fins highlighted by light and shadow. As a group, the piccolos feel playful yet poignant, musing on the endless diversity of human characteristics.
