Multidisciplinary

Anthea Carboni

Anthea Carboni originally trained in art therapy and teaching, but has always been involved in art – designing, making and selling mainly textile-based work at markets and exhibitions for more than 20 years.

‘Delving into ceramics has been wonderful’ she says.  ‘Clay is such a visceral material, and I feel like I have been able to go back to the basics and rediscover what being creative is really about’. Anthea is greatly influenced by Japanese design, and the concept of ‘wabi sabi’- beauty in imperfection.  ‘I love the idea that an object can have a strong but unassuming aesthetic, and can be understood at an intuitive level’ she explains. ‘For me, this means it needs to be simple and subtle in design, as well as a little bit imperfect’ says Anthea.

Creating under the name Yuniko Studio, Anthea makes her ceramics by hand, using basic techniques – rolling, cutting out, slumping or humping and paddling the shape.
