Anne Podbielski was brought up in Geneva, where she started a career in the finance industry. However, her job did not satisfy her creative needs and decided to focus exclusively on her artistic passion. Her instinct, combined with stubborn research, led her towards purified forms; combining strength and simplicity. Through its minimalist masks, the complex writing of the individual takes shape. Drawn to stone since a very early age, it was only natural for her to carve by hand a variety of materials: gypsum, marble, granite and alabastos and discovers deep affinities with bronze- through its texture and combination of colours. Her characters with rounded shapes are a mixture of abstraction and positive energy. Brancusi, J. Epstein, Moore and the Easter Island sculpture have strongly inspired her. As Martin Gray so aptly put it "emotion is the instant or a being forgot its fractures that divides it into pieces – a sensitivity, a reason, a social appearance – to come together and manifest that it no longer wants to accept this division of the ego, it is moved entirely by this emotion." Most recently, Anne moved to Portugal where she started working with local craft-men to transform her art in timeless homeware pieces. Her aim is to integrate art into everyday life through the domestication of her sculptures. Inspired by the atmosphere of her new adopted country she then created “GAÏA” in a palette of bright warm or acid colours to enhance this wonderful hand made work associating the purity of the line to the imperfection artisanal tradition making every single vase a unique piece of Art.
