Ann Randeraad

The self-taught Amaranth potter is the force behind a decade of the annual Empty Bowls food bank fundraiser at Alton Mill Arts Centre.

Potter Ann Randeraad elevates everyday kitchenware to tactile works of original art begging to be held in both hands. Her recent porcelain pieces feature watery washes of turquoise and pink with hits of deep red and ashy brown. Ann plays with Japanese glazing techniques and wax “resists” to create loose, organic patterns – then waits for her blazing woodfired kiln to add serendipitous alterations. The self-taught Amaranth potter is the force behind a decade of the annual Empty Bowls food bank fundraiser at Alton Mill Arts Centre. Lucky guests choose one of Ann’s or another potter’s bowls for their soup — then get to keep the bowl. Ann opens her home studio for Artfelt Love, December 6 to 8.
