Of Weeds and Vermin

Another day in paradise
This is early morning; I’m walking around my garden with a mug of coffee in my hand. I’m thinking about what happened a couple of days ago, across the road.

And I come across this builders’ sack full  of weeds I pulled up last year. In amongst the rotting vegetation wild garlic and lung worth have self seeded.

Fox is asleep beneath the apple tree. He grins at me as I pass by as if by saying; ‘told you so! As long as the sun shines, there will always be us weeds and vermin.’
And he closes his eyes, and goes back to sleep.
And suddenly all is well again with my world.



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.
