Ronna Ander is ceramicist and painter practicing in North Vancouver. Ander’s pottery is inspired by traditional English ceramics as well as the Japanese concept of Wabi-sabi. Wabi-sabi places emphasis upon the beauty of the ‘imperfect’, allowing us to celebrate an object’s raw aesthetic.
Ander’s interest in studio ceramics began 30 years ago where as a student she joined the Gleneagles Community Centre pottery studio in 1988. In 1998, Ronna became the studio’s Technician where she now oversees the running of the studio. In 1999 Ander joined Capilano College’s Advanced Pottery, where she studied for 11 years.
Ander continues to work from the Gleneagles Community Centre studio.
