Anne Hirondelle

Hirondelle's beginnings as an artist were with clay. For over 20 years she was drawn to the vessel as an abstraction and metaphor for containment taking ideas from traditional pots and stretching them into sculptural forms. Simultaneously, her drawings, once ancillary to her sculptures, took on a life of their own. Derived from the ceramic forms, drawn with graphite and colored pencil on multiple layers of tracing paper, each piece is a further exploration of abstraction.
