The Boston based ceramicist, Anne Mastrangelo, has been
working in low-fire clay for twenty years. Her pieces are both
sculptural and functional, made of both white clay and terracotta.
The lively and rich colors and patterns in her work evoke the
work of Matisse and African art. They are vibrant and are abstract,
as well as representational with imagery ranging from her dog
(or yours!) to her garden. Some large pieces seem to be moving
in their own space. They are twisted, curved, or cut out. Light
plays on the inside and out.
All functional ware is non-toxic and food safe, but not to be used
as cookware. Most vases can hold flowers and dried flowers.
Anne Mastrangelo has been included in numerous group
shows, including Kantar Fine Arts, The Dog Show,
at Levinson Kane Gallery, Boston, Maverick Studios Group
Show, at the Massachusetts State House, East End Gallery,
Provincetown, MA, and Local Color, Clark Gallery,
Her work is in numerous corporate collections, including that of
the Brigham & Women’s Hospital, Boston, MA, Coopers & Lybrand,
Inc., Boston, MA, Sonesta International Hotels Corporation, and
The Patrons of the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston, MA. She
is represented in many private collections throughout the United
