Anima Roos was born in Zaïre in 1956. Her work can be found in museums worldwide.
Throughout my career as a ceramist I have made aesthetic forms with references to nature and various cultures. Working on the wheel, I throw fine porcelain objects, playing with balance, translucency and shadow, pushing technical possibilities to the extreme. I have often changed my expression, my ceramic language, but there was always a recognizable "Anima" signature, the evolution of my work was following a line.
And then, out of nowhere - is this the new workshop or the age...? Forms came up to visualize another aspect of my personality. A bubbling, a rash! Starting with small forms that I cut and join, a structure which is growing organically until it finds its curve - it’s balance, it’s expression.
Using references to nature, I tried to visualize my swirling thoughts in a solidified structure. The growing, eroded, convulsing form. The white porcelain with flowing movements covered with black, cracked glaze are moving in balance.
