Obsessively recording the view…


It has been a while since I last posted, and I apologize. But I seem to have fallen into a helpless state of worship; I cannot stop looking at the clouds, the sea;  even the silently waiting trees outside my window leave me feeling faint with love.

I am talking about the view from my studio.
I have this desire to enter the scene – the earth itself drives me mad as I pound the clay on my table, drawing pictures that of course are rubbish. Well, you have to start somewhere.



I am trying to find a format; framed?


Or unframed?

Does it even matter? I need to draw the images until I can stop making sense and just capture the essence.

I know I want to smoke fire the plaques, and I know that they will be mainly monochrome. I am making all these glaze tests; silver, white, grey, brown – shiny or matte. It really is a lot of fun. But it is playing havoc with my social life.


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.
