About

Annette Bugansky is an award winning British ceramic designer who produces fresh yet timeless collections of contemporary vessels, lighting and wall art, starting from her own textile structures.

After working with her family for Saville Row where her father was a freelance master tailor, Annette started her career as a pattern-cutter, seamstress and designer. Specialising first in bespoke wedding dresses and eveningwear, she then became Head Tailor at the BBC and made costumes for the Royal Ballet and the English National Opera. She now combines these skills and experience with her passion for texture and surface, to produce beautiful ceramics.

Her vessels bring together ceramics with traditional clothes pattern drafting techniques and her own experimental stitch, crochet and embroidery. For each ceramic mould Annette makes ‘little clothes’ or a textile layer to fit the form perfectly, resulting in sensual tactile surface patterns on her otherwise minimal contemporary pieces.

Annette is inspired by growing up in Soho’s near Berwick Street, famed for its rag trade: the texture in nubbly linens or smooth silks; London brickwork and the bark of its Lime trees; the glow of natural light highlighting decorative iron stairways and bouncing off rooftops; twinkling stars and elegant clothes.

Annette also impresses, cuts and reforms cast slabs of porcelain to produce sculptural wall art and has recently worked on commissions for Portsmouth Museum, , and Aisha Al Saif
