For this show Anna began a new body of work where thrown porcelain columns take on human postures. In response to The Send Off Dwam* sees a group huddled and turning inwards as if aware of their fate. In Contour and Mantle route-like tracings suggest repetition and routine.

* Dwam

Dwam or dwaum: chiefly Scottish - meaning stupor, daydream, to faint or fall ill – lying in bed, in a dwam before sleep

Down the close, darkening lanes they sang their way
To the siding-shed,
And lined the train with faces grimly gay.
