Annie Henry creates sculpture based on the idea of spiral. Dance, music, movement and growth play an important role in the creation of her work. After laying a firm foundation, the clay spirals upward determining its own form.
Annie was born in Wales in 1956 where she grew up. Her family were musical and her paternal grandfather was an artist/photographer. Since 1966 she has lived in London but came to Cornwall in 2002 to set up her studio in Perranuthnoe when she took part in the St Ives International Ceramica Festival.
Since then she has exhibited at Camelford Gallery, Wavelength Gallery in Falmouth, Seagrove Gallery in Marazion, Hicks Gallery in Wimbledon, the Affordable Arts Fair at Battersea and Rivers Gallery in Nailsworth, Glos.
Over the last couple of years Annie has been creating beautiful angels in collaboration with basket weaver and willow worker Geraldine Jones. Recently the wings have taken on a softer feel, worked in patchworked fabrics and quilted. "It has been an absolute joy working with vibrant colours!"
