Ane Raunam (b. 1959 in Tallinn)
I started to participate in exhibitions in 1983. I have participated in most applied art exhibitions held in Estonia. Personal exhibitions: 1991 in the gallery of Tallinn Art Hall, 1992 in Kristjan Raud Museum in Tallinn, exhibitions in A-Gallery in 1999, 2001 and 2002 and in the Safe of A-Gallery in 2006, 2009 and 2013. My works have been exposed also in Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Russia, Germany, UK, Finland, Denmark, Sweden and China.
“Morning is a fragile time. Every day begins in a different way. Sometimes you wake up in a good mood, sometimes low-spirited or even sad. Early one morning, while sitting in the kitchen with my first cup of coffee and fliping an old silver spoon back and forth in my hand, I had the idea of capturing the different moods of my mornings. As a silversmith, I would naturally do it in silver. The most important one became the old spoon that I held in my hand that morning. And so it was that HAPPY MORNING was born, where I “grew” a whimsical and happy whirlwind of white freshwater pearls and golden spheres onto the handle of the spoon in place of the head.” – Ane Raunam at the A-Gallery exhibition MEMORY CARDS (2019)
