It is great when you sell your art work, but if the client lives far away, then what?
I have tried a few courier firms, and where as most times my sculptures arrive in one piece, other times …
Yes, well…This was my Blue Angel sculpture before she crashed.
So now, I try to deliver my sculptures personally; I’ve got these ancient Samsonite suitcases, and as long as the collector doesn’t live too far away, a day on the train is quite amusing.
Yesterday, I delivered a ceramic torso to a lady in Cambridge; I felt surreptitious and furtive like a goon; a quick rendezvous outside the station, both of us in dark glasses, a flurry of bubble wrap and crying babies and then back on the train with an empty suitcase.
This is a link to my website, where you can find more torsos and other work.
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.

Were you both wearing red carnations in your buttonholes? Or was it red roses?
