Born in England in 1986, Anna Voke lives and works in Grenoble. After studying art history at the University of East Anglia (MA), she trained in ceramics in Michael Heckmann's workshop in southern Germany (Gesellenbrief), then worked in numerous European workshops, including the European Ceramic Centre le Don du Fel, which enabled her to perfect a variety of shaping techniques, to master salt glazing and wood firing.
She is now developing a practice of architectural ceramics in response to a reflection on materials and their origins, integrating a practice of surveying territories and geo-sourcing materials. Her work questions the links between the perception and surveying of a landscape, the context of the Anthropocene and the potential of ceramics to retranscribe experiences plastically, through notions of materiality and memory. Since the end of 2021, she has been preparing a research-creation thesis on architectural ceramics at the Institut Acte at the Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne.
