Bronze Goddess

It is always fun to try out new finishes, and since I love all things shiny I’m attracted to bronze and gold.
I decided to mix bronze filler (bronze powder) with varnish and paint it on to one of my new ceramic art goddesses.

I had already glazed her halo and bib with a gold glaze.

And on goes the bronze layer. Next, I mixed some graphite powder with varnish and painted that on top.

And then I rubbed over the entire sculpture with steel wool

And about an hour later, she started to glow…

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.
