The ceramic totem pole

The final totem pole measures 110 cm high and this is one side of it showing Maggot and the open hand of Gaia.  It is being exhibited at the Isabel Blackman center in Hastings Old town as part of the Jack in the Green festival. The private view is on Friday 4th – and please drop in if you’re local…

This is a link to the festivities…


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.

  1. Oh God I love it! If I was there, I would definitely be dropping in. Wish I could get my brother to go… he’s not far from you in Selsey. Good luck with the exhibition

    I really like the way you have done this vertical sculpture. I went to a workshop recently about making vertical sculptures – if I’d seen an example like yours I’d have been more enthusiastic. Most of the ones shown to us were a lot more abstracted and didn’t appeal at all. Good luck with your exhibition.

      Cheers – it is a story board or diary, really; little parcels of thought and emotions stuck together on a frame.
      You should have come to my workshops instead. Obviously! 😉

    really nice,I love your badger! are the pieces fixed or do they rotate?


    • Anna says:

      The bottom box and the frogs are fixed to the frame and the rest are just stuck on top of each other supported by the rod that goes through…you can change the order of appearance each day of the week – should you wish to.
      Thanks for stopping by!
