Spirals

blog tree fernI am looking at spirals. They are everywhere: from enormous spiral galaxies made up of millions of stars to the tiny spirals on the tip of my fingers. blog Blue Mermaid jan 08                                                                     

I use spirals a lot in my work. To me it is a sacred symbol. It has been used since palaeolithic times to symbolise fertility and the Great Godess.  The spirals in this torso celebrate the Godess as the sea.

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.
