Ann Van Every
During a life spent living and traveling in Europe, North Africa and the Americas, Ann Van Every has found working in clay to be a passport of sorts. No matter where she went, she found that a mutual love and respect for clay transcended differences in language, cultural heritage, age and gender. Her travels have also informed her work. Through observing many ancient traditional forms and techniques, has developed her own unique style. “I have made many lasting friendships based on the profound miracle of taking a bit of earth and transforming it into a thing of beauty,” she says.
