Kana London was born fortuitously as a result of Ana Kerin’s training in sculpture & background in fine art, eventually becoming a fully developed project in London in 2012.
Sculpting and an affinity for working with clay led Ana to wanting to apply the principles of her art work – the tactile, hand built aesthetics, the traces of fingerprints and hands on the surface – into functional ceramics.
Ana’s approach to work is experimental and playful, as she never follows a procedure, and invents new recipes daily. Ana works with a unique mixture of clays and mixes her own glazes, often turning her back on traditional ceramic practice. Hand building, rather than turning on the wheel, further emphasizes the individuality of each piece.
All of Ana’s work is: stoneware, food safe glazed, made from durable materials & suitable for use in the oven & dishwasher (though, as with any precious ceramics, hand washing & avoiding frequent oven use is advised).
