1981-1983 Dip. Textile Design, Wellington Polytechnic, NZ

For Anthea, the protection of New Zealand agricultural waterways, and the fish, that have and do still inhabit some of them, is key. Fascinated by the traditional form and texture of wicker creel baskets used for collecting fish, she has continued to use this as a departure point in her practice for the vessels she creates. Preferring to hand-build, and working with porcelain clay, her darker speckled clay body is a closer fit to the river environment, lending itself towards exploring the fine craftsmanship of basketry and weaving.

Anthea has a studio in her rural home in the Wairarapa.
