Ross Mitchell-Anyon makes objects with love, care and integrity. His process begins with digging clay from Pahiatua. He values collecting his materials – he becomes more attached to it, and consequently more respectful of it, recycling rather than wasting. He works minimally with glazes, and he enjoys the process where clay and glaze become one – become part of the body.
Mitchell-Anyon’s work takes the form of domestic ware. He believes that many potters are preoccupied with wanting to fit into a fine arts formula, and his view is that art is made when makes engage with materials and forms with passion.
