Hannah Staber, Art Consultant (casual)

Hannah studies Ceramics at the University for the Creative Arts in Farnham. Although focusing on ceramics, her course also encompasses practices in glass, jewellery and metal which has allowed her to study a range of craft processes, which inform her work at the New Ashgate Gallery. Before moving to the UK to study, Hannah lived in Vienna where she was surrounded by striking architecture, museums and galleries, which lead to her deep appreciation of the visual arts.
