Artist Annette Libby was born in Germany and grew up in the beautiful region of Wetterau north of Frankfurt am Main. Her love for nature started when she was a little girl.
Muenzenburg / Wetterau - Germany
She married and moved to Virigina Beach, VA. 26 years ago.
Her love for nature remained but it was not until she moved to North Carolina where a happy coincidence got her in touch with clay.
Annette started to work as sales assistant at DK Clay,a pottery studio in Clayton,near Raleigh, NC.
She had always been fascinated by the fact that one can turn a moist and moldable piece of clay into something completely permanent just by introducing heat, whereas if left out in the elements it would eventually return back to it's origin.
When the company she was working for moved to another city, Annette decided to start making her own pottery and began experimenting with clay and those materials she found in nature. Walks through the forests close to her home have given her the inspiration to create these fabulous and unique pieces of art ever since.
Annette's pottery is formed by hand using a clay slab.
Her connection with nature is reflected in her Art.
