Household Gods

During the last couple of weeks I have been busy getting work ready for various summer exhibitionsbloggod. I have had great fun creating new Household Gods which I smoke fire in my galvanized dustbins.
The House Gods are a modern take on the Roman Lares and Penates, little statues worshipped in all Roman households. These Gods were responsible for keeping the family safe and healthy. Each family had their own Gods and they were passed down the generations.
When I make my Household Gods, I give them a designated field of influence:
This charming House God has a great affinity to lollipops and bald men, for example.

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.
