Ceramic torsos; Zechariah’s Angel

 Zechariah was quite an old man when one day an angel appeared before him announcing that his wife – who was also  pretty ancient – was going to give birth to a son.  This is all in the new testament, and the son was John the Baptist.
I have made a pregnant angel – she is the angel of the future, really.
She is made inside a press mold and glazed with oxides and then smoke fired.

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.
