Anna Collette Hunt works with ceramics to create objects that rekindle a forgotten childlike sense of curiosity and delight. The scenes she then creates with these objects speak of historic grandeur and past traditions whilst on closer inspection whisper darker sentiments delicately in your ear.

 

Anna Collette Hunt

 

One of her works Stirring The Swarm is a peace she created from a fairy tale she was inspired to make after studying Nottingham’s entomologist collection, in the fairy tale the 10,000 specimens mysteriously come back to life!

 
 

The works she does are dark and sinister yet beautiful and compelling making me want to try out her ideas.

Her other works include the likes of The Newstead Oddities and The Night Screech which are amazing Wall dish collections which grab your attention with their intricate designs.
