The Mermaid

I am that soundless, boundless, bitter sea.
All tides are mine, and answer unto me.
Tides of the airs, tides of the inner earth.
The secret, silent tides of death and birth…

Dion Fortune: The Sea Priestess

I have got this need to create images of the Great Goddess in a human shape…I see the earth as a living entity, and I guess this is a way of communicating with her.
This is a smoke fired ceramic torso – 20”x14”.
It is made to hang from the wall with hooks at the back. See more at my website www.annakeiller.com.

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.
