Darkened Craving






After many years working in earthenware and porcelain in pastel and bright glazes, Dark Sugar is one of Anna Barlow's results in her experimentations with Parian clay. The name Parian is derived from Paros, the Aegian Island famous for its beautiful white marble widely used for sculpture by the classical Greeks. Parian ware became very popular in the mid-nineteenth century and was manufactured by many notable Stoke-on-Trent potteries. Barlow has been interested in contrasting her usual palette with a more breathtaking pure black, giving her series on the subject of indulgent treats and the rituals of food a dramatic turn.


Darkened Craving is yet another fantastic example of the artist's ability in glazing and accomplishment in fine detail.
