Star light

I have wallowed beneath grey clouds for the longest while. I have developed a thirst for a certain type of light.
It is the cold silvery light of stars that I crave. Illuminated crystals.


Or Ice, when the sun shines through.
I took these photos a few winters back when the Ice was cannibalizing my Hot House Geraniums.

I have developed a single minded hunger for that cold, white light.

I sit by my window at night. And I look out for the stars.
The clouds, coloured orange by Hastings sodium street lights, gaze back at me with bovine incomprehension.


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.

    I know what you mean, something, anything would be better than rain rain rain and a constant grey sky. Love your pictures – Great icicles! 🙂

    What is amazing is the blue of the sky in your photos, did we ever have anything other than rain these past few weeks 😦

    They are fantastic. Was this February 2010 by any chance?

    I love that little prose at the end 🙂

      Yes, I think it was, Al. I’m glad you relate to the piece – I think we’re all sharing the same dream. And you can be in mine, if I can be in yours…(Bob Dylan said that…)
