Anne Butler – Objects in Time

About the event

Anne Butler’s Objects in Time will be on display at the Golden Thread Gallery from Friday 4th August to Saturday 2nd September. (Make sure to check gallery opening times).


Anne Butler is a ceramic artist based in Northern Ireland. She has exhibited widely in Ireland, UK and abroad. The work is inspired by natural and manmade structures and is constructed to reveal associations between cultural and individual memory as well as contrasting qualities of strength and fallibility, permanence, change and loss. The parian porcelain vessels, wall pieces and sculptures attempt to explore the material and the effect of time.


“My working method is intrinsically connected to the act of making and the endless experimentation with the changing state of parian porcelain. A wide palette of techniques, which include casting, hand-building and sculpting are continually being challenged and developed to contrast the precision of industrial techniques and geometric structure with the fallibility of the handmade.” A Butler
