Anne Petters is a multi media artist with a strong background in glass art. She has been trained and worked in the field of glass design. In 2009 she received a Diploma in Fine Arts/ Glass at the Institute of Ceramic and Glass Art in Germany and in 2011 the Master of Fine Arts in Sculpture/ Dimensional Studies at Alfred University, New York. Anne Petters has been showing work in glass museums and art institutions in Germany. Born in Dresden in 1978 she grew up in the German Democratic Republic. She understands the political change in her country, which she experienced as a displacement of reality, as a basic influence on her lifestyle and artistic work. Her interest in controlling and displaying moments of our fleeting, vulnerable existence leads her to a poetic, metaphoric use of glass and other materials, including natural phenomena.
Anne Petters is Assistant Professor at the Institute for Ceramic and Glass Art in Hoehr-Grenzhausen, Germany. She has recently been awarded an honorary diploma in the Jutta Cuny Franz Memorial Award.
