Mood critters

It is that time of year again when new and strange shapes appear everywhere. This is the time when nature re-invents itself by pushing out new tendrils and shoots; into the concrete, onto the tarmac. Birds fight their way out of eggs only to be gobbled up by some silly cat;  Bambi struggles to his feet in a meadow nearby…. The trees stand speechless, holding their breath, waiting for the moment when they can hold back no longer and their buds explode into a green frenzy of pain and ecstasy. 
The wind is cold and the sun hot;   I can’t sleep and when I do I fall out of bed kicking at the shadows surrounding me.

This mixed medium sculpture is made with bronzed plaster and a sea shell.. It may well be one mutation too far.

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.
