Anna-Lise Schmidt is a ceramic artist working and living in Calgary, Alberta. Upon graduating with a Bachelor of Arts from Emily Carr University in Vancouver in 2013, Schmidt returned to Calgary to focus on her practice. Her work has an organic quality, glazes referencing landscapes and colours found in nature as well as quirky anthropomorphic forms. Some of the animals you will see referenced in her work include cat eared dishes, flamingo pots, and llama planters. Schmidt states that she is drawn to clay as a medium because of its multifaceted process, from designing and tests to the physical preparation and forming.
