Picking raspberries for breakfast this beautiful solstice morning. And there he is…
Foxy. Fast asleep in the early morning sunshine.
I can hear him snore as I tiptoe closer … Will he rush off in a panic if I get too close?
But breakfast calls…So needs must; I start crashing through the raspberry canes, reaching for the juicy red glorious berries…Mmm
As I tramp about filling my bowl, the cool little fox just turns over, yawns, and, covering his nose with his beautiful tail, falls back into a dream.
I have never fed him, and I don’t know how he got so tame. The only thing he seems to fear around my house and garden is…
The Skittle Cat. Lord of all he surveys. Should have called him Greebo.
Happy Solstice, everyone.
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.
