Artist Biographical Statement

Anne Egitto moved to Lawrence, Kansas in 2008 to work on her doctorate degree in anthropology. She began selling her pottery in 2009 and received professional encouragement by being accepted into the 2012 Orton International Cone Box Show. She completed her doctorate degree in 2014 and now teaches at Haskell Indian Nations University.

After a problematic self-education in pottery, Anne began taking classes at the Lawrence Arts Center in 2008. She was introduced to stoneware and the Korean technique of mishima (stamping and/or carving, then filling in with color and removing excess color to reveal a pattern). Because her pots were thin, Hak Kyun Kim the artist in residence at the time, encouraged her to try porcelain. She immediately fell in love with the silky clay and began using her pots as a canvas. She is currently hand painting six different motifs and experimenting with wax resist decorations. She has returned to mishima techniques on her porcelain and using stoneware. In spite of her affection for this art, she has absolutely no desire to go back to grad school. Ever. — Well, on most days.
