Anne Laure Harskamp – AnLou Creations

Anne Laure is a self-taught ceramicist and the artist behind small brand AnLouCreations.

She was born in the Netherlands, but grew up partially in France and spent most of her adulthood living in London, before moving to Australia in 2014

In 2009, Anne Laure completed an MA in Sculpture at Wimbledon College of Art (UAL) in London, during which her passion for hand building grew. A few years later she started an evening pottery course in London and it’s there that she discovered her true love for working with clay.

Together with her partner and two small children, she lives in the outer suburbs of Melbourne, where she creates, during every spare moment she gets, from her little home studio.

Anne Laure creates one-off, handbuilt, functional and decorative pieces out of stoneware and porcelain clay. Using slab, pinch and coil techniques her work is predominantly process driven, often decorated with sgraffitto, imprinted textiles or handpainted with endless repetitive patterns.
