Note to self: next time you play with araldite and fake fur please don’t drink 3 mugs of coffee on an empty stomach beforehand…

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.

    Before the search for reason destroyed imagination, zooilogical impossibitlies were not just plausable but very real in the mind. These creatures are survivors from that time and rekindle the innocent wonder of a world we could and should never fully understand.

    In a moment joyful ,sinister, wonderful, terrifiyng and beautiful- like life.

    Oh yes. Another neat idea. At first glance it’s a hermit crab. Then you see the fingers, arranged very much as a hermit crabs legs would be. It is a little sinister, unlike the Shell Baby, which is pure cute.
