Ceramic wall plaques

Edward Gorey was an American cartoonist who specialized in dark humorous pencil drawings illustrating the plight of the Forgotten Edwardian Murderesses,  the Fateful Lozenge, Gashlycrumb Tinies or the Unstrung Harp; dark, brooding and ultimately very silly and funny. I suppose he inspired me to make a series of very deep and meaningless wall plaques.

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.
