The Dissolving Madonna – reclaiming clay

A sculpture I was making didn’t work out, so I chucked it in a bucket of water to recycle the clay and start again. After a day or two I had a look and this is what I saw…                         

I think she looks so beautiful like this – much better than the original bust!


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.
