House Gods for the garden

As winter storms batter my house and garden, I’m spending time in my studio creating ceramic House Gods dedicated to protect  flowers in the garden.
This Garden Goddess will protect your borders from Rabbits and Footballs. Load her up with good intent and watch the magic unfold…

And this Garden Goddess has an affinity with Slugs and Snails. If you ask her nicely, she will send them over to your neighbour’s garden to graze on his petunias instead of  on yours.

My House Gods are a modern take on the old Roman Lares and Penates, domestic Gods meant to protect the home and larder.

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.
