Mindy the seagull has decided she’s to be part of this house hold. She has had a disastrous spring; she broke her leg and lost her mate and now…well, now we’re her new family , it seems. She will squeeze through any open window or door and I often hear her patter-patter on the floor boards behind me as I work in my studio…
Oh, oh – Mindy alert!
But I am not sure about this arrangement. Do I really want to turn this wild creature into a pet? Or is the choice already made for me – am I to be HER pet?
And the Skittle Cat , lord of all he surveys;
Well, he has issues, too.
He adores it when she finishes off his old food so that he can have a top-up of fresh stuff…
But these days she’s always around…

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.

Awww..that is so sweet and it seems Skittle adores her. She chose you for sure. 🙂
Thank you x
I don’t think Mindy’s become your pet – you’re offering food & shelter, she’s taken you up on that. She ain’t tame, just happy you’re there 🙂
I think you’re right – but both Skittle cat and I find her a bit alarming inside the house…
Let you and the Skittle cat be her pets, I think she needs that 😉
She is so dominant, Per…I find it hard to be a part time pal…She’s banging on the doors and on the windows too often – and if any door or window is open she’s in! But yes, I do like her. But no, I don’t want her in the house all the time as she will freak if unexpected things happen – take flight and then brain herself against the closed window .
Ok, I understand your problem… But can’t help it’s very cute in a way 😉 I will follow this 😉 Sorry for the short reply, but I’m stuck with the Iphone for the moment.
