Ceramic torso vase, the final result.

The ceramic torso vase looks pretty different  from side to side, and that is down to what happened during the smoke firing process. I used red Botz glaze for the hearts,

while the body had a wash of copper, manganese and red iron oxide. It is glazed with transparent glaze on the inside to render it water tight and also to add a bit of contrast to the matt finish outside.


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.
