Ceramic torso with bronze finish

This is a ceramic torso with a bronze finish made by painting the bisqued torso with a mixture of bronze filler and varnish.

I painted a layer of graphite powder and varnish on top and then rubbed back with steel wool.

I’ve been busy…

My ceramic torsos are made with hooks at the back to hang from – but I sometimes like to mount them on oak plinths like this. The oak comes from a friend’s barn in Kent.

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.
