Pomegranates

Over the last few weeks I have been tripping on pomegranates. I have been obsessed with their shape and how it changes as they mature. Paper clay is a fabulous product in that it makes it so easy to sculpt – I can add bits or detract without worrying too much about using slip or that the shape will warp…

I have tried terracotta, white eartenware and grogged paper clay so far, and the grogged is my absolute favourite.
I can’t wait for them to dry out so I can bisque fire and then glaze and smoke fire them… They are are between 20 and 30 cm tall. Watch this space!

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.
