More smoke fired torsos

I am constantly amazed at how much the glaze change when you smoke fire itblog blue t .

     This is another example; a ceramic torso with a blue glaze (Botz Blaueffekt) about to enter my galvanised dustbin!smf blog 3       

And there she goes!blog blue t 2

And this is the end result. I  much prefer the colours now. The naked flame does something to the glaze – it comes alive. When it doesn’t crack and break altogether, that is.

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.
