I usually glaze my bowls in stages to avoid mistakes. But now I am stuck; I covered the fish with a mottled blue crystal glaze; the shells are predictably white. But what colour shall the sea be?
I am so tempted to use a rich orange! The same glazes I use for my pomegranates;

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.
