Fox blog

During the few days following my Hastings open studio I lounged around the house and garden a lot, sleeping most of the time. I haven’t been this exhausted for years. I was sleeping amongst some trees in my garden when I felt someone nibbling at my hair.foxblog 1

And my feet! A playful fox cub whirling around me like a dry leaf in the wind. foxblog 5

My cat, General Major Eagleburger, Skittle, for short, came to investigate the commotion. But he is an old gentleman by now so the two of them just glared at eachother for a while. foxblog 3   

And then I went back indoors to sleep where it was less crowded.

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.

    Gorgeous photography.
    In Australia foxes are considered feral and wildlife killers – i believe cars kill more wildlife on roads than foxes do.
    My mother lived on a farm for a while and a family of foxes adopted her while my father was overseas,and being my mum, she fed the foxes very well.
    I think they’re wonderful little beings.

      In England too some people regard foxes as vermin and kill them for sport – But they are as intelligent and personable as dogs, don’t you find? You don’t even need to feed them – they can do that for themselves unless they’re hurt or sick…I’m glad you like them, too
