Torso with fern blog2

I remember making this torso a few years back. I had just come back from a walk on the East Hill near Hastings where there used to be an old Bronze age settlement.
I was walking across the bracken, thinking about what it may have been like to live on this hill all those years ago, when I saw a lady come walking towards me a little bit further up the path; a silhouette against the setting sun. Some crows flew over head, cackling,  and I looked up for a moment.  When I turned back, she was gone.

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.
