Tanis Saxby apprenticed as a carver and stone sculptor on B.C.'s Saltspring Island before studying ceramics at the Kootenay School of Arts. In 2005, she was awarded the International Residency in Ceramics in Vallauris, France, through a Canada-wide selection. Since returning to Vancouver, she has studied photography at Focal Point Photography School and continues her clay studio practice.

Tanis' ceramic forms embody tranquility, sensuality, and stillness-in-motion. Shadows play an important role in her creative process, from conception through to the final form and presentation of her works. In FLOW, lines and shadows are further interpreted through the synthesis of her photography and her porcelain work. The effect is a composition of form within form, of interpretation within interpretation.
