Up Muddy Creek

Dribble Vase by Annette Bull

Ceramic artist Annette Bull began working with clay shortly after the birth of her son, Max. After initially grabbing moments in the shed with a kick wheel, Annette completed a diploma in Ceramic Design with Otago Polytechnic in 2008.

Since her graduation Annette has explored ideas and techniques initiated during study, tutored part time at at EIT, and recently opened her own gallery and studio 'Up Muddy Creek' with partner Natham Crossan - a painter and print maker.

The wheel still forms a large part of what Annette does, and is used as a tool for building more sculptural work, as well as for making more functional ware. Her unique styling of blending and sometimes stapling two different piece of clay together, using different stains and oxides and well as textures saw her being nominated for the Portage Ceramic Award in 2010.
