Each product is a pinch of luxury which deserves to be savoured with clear conscience, thanks to the awareness of the high and artisanal quality of every single detail. When we talk about "domestic accessories", we mean those objects which are not only pleasant to the eyes but also useful, especially in the kitchen. A home needs not only furniture, but also accessories to enrich it with a touch of elegance. Anne Black brand is able to satisfy both these needs, with unmistakable style.
Anne Black's story begins in a small village in Denmark, where a young girl used to spend all her spare time modelling and baking clay and other materials. When she found out to be really talented, she decided to open her first workshop where to produce and sell her porcelains, and day after day her creativity made her famous. At the beginning, the artist used to produce mainly useful and common items such as cups, terrines and containers; but then she started to explore new fields such as jewellery, lamps and Christmas decorations. Anne Black's art is influenced mainly by the Nordic and Oriental cultures. Nordic handicraft is characterized by minimalist and rigid lines and shapes, smooth surfaces and neutral colours, usually not decorated. White and beige nuances are the most common for kitchen and dining room items. On the other hand, Oriental handicraft is characterized by sloping shapes, dark colours with contrasting patterns, and often enriched by ideograms and sparkling details. Both these trends inspiring Anne Black come from her personal history: the Nordic one comes of course from her being born and raised in Northern Europe (especially Denmark); the Oriental influence instead comes from the in-depth study of Vietnamese culture and the foundation of a workshop (which is still operational) in Vietnam where, through the collaboration with local ceramists, she made her products known also in Asia, where porcelain has always been much appreciated.
