My beach is in tatters…

I can’t believe the constant rain and storms; this is my favourite beach in Hastings, and just look at it now. The water has undermined the sandstone rocks to the extent they are just falling into the sea ll over the place.

On the plus side, I guess we’ll find some nice fossils…



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.

    Storms always build and destroy beaches. I guess it’s happened for eons. The fossils are exciting. Can’t wait to see what you find.

    I am glad to see no one was injured and I am sure you will find nice fossils now. Nature knows what’s best. 😀

      I would like to think that Nature knows best…that is a comforting thought, Sonel. I’m feeling a bit upset about all these gales and floods, and wish it would all calm down. In fact, I wish I was sitting in your lovely garden chatting with your monkeys…And with you, of course xx


      • Sonel says:

        Yes, I like to comfort myself with that thought as well but it does make me sad in a way because I always feel that nature is lashing out at the people that’s not looking after her and some of them don’t learn.

        Now that would be so lovely and I am sure the monkeys would love to have you here as well. 😀 xxx

    On the plus side (maybe) – can’t do anything about the cliff, but some of the beach which is being washed away on your beach will probably be replaced soon by the beach being washed off here – it’s already on its way up the Channel 🙂
