This is a shrine to Oannes, the Persian Sky God who taught mankind how to farm the land and fish the seas.
The God sculpture is ceramic with gold glaze and bronze finish effects, the shrine is made of wood and the entire sculpture is 45 cm high and 28 cm wide (with shut doors)
And to balance the male Sky God; this is the female Earth Star.
Again, I have used gold glaze and bronze powder mixed with matte varnish to create a bronze effect.
The shrine is 42 cm high and 33 cm wide ( again with the doors closed)

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.
