Torso commission


From the plaster cast torso of the client


To the glazed ceramic torso. It is deliberately under glazed because I want to smoke fire it.


…and into the dustbin it goes


…along with some sawdust and wood shavings; this is beautiful oak.

And…Pooof! I love this bit!


This morning, I removed the lid to see what remained


And now for the clean up…She had a few Fat Birds in for company.

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.

      Thank you, Keira. I hope she’ll like it. Regarding the head; just playing…it is for myself, a Goddess – made from clay, don’t worry 🙂


      • it looked stunning – the head too. & I can’t imagine your client wouldn’t like the torso! A friend of mine got one done in a bronze finish by a guy I know here. They are wonderful pieces of work, these torsos – & yours has a fantastic finish
