Mandarin Oriental Commission


I was commissioned to design two arches for the main lobby at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Taipei a while back. The project was part of a two year hotel refurbishment, and the results were unveiled earlier this autumn.
I’ve only just been given this image showing both arches, so I thought I’d upload it and show it to you.

MOTPE Lobby 大廳

The brief started off as a request to design porcelain flowers for a ceiling, but money became an issue and we ended up with two arches instead. I only designed the molds; the actual porcelain flowers were produced at a pottery in China.

I wish someone would commission me to create a ceiling, though. Or a wall…! I would enjoy that.


About Anna

I am a ceramic sculptor living on the South coast near London, England. My work is influenced by my experience of the earth as a living being and seeing how we are all connected with eachother and with the things that surround us. I create ceramic torsos using molochite clay which I often smokefire in galvanised dustbins. I also make House Gods to protect and amuse, and Fat Birds - little smokefired sculptures that tell the story about what it is like to be a fat bird at peace with its surroundings.
