Studio view and Ceramic Plaques

So in love with the view from my studio window, and the worship continues. I stare at the walls, I dance round the floor, I talk to the parrots – sometimes I make plaques. Sometimes I smoke fire them in my trusty dustbin outside.
Point is, I still haven’t a clue what I am looking at. It is still on the outside of me; the view is a view is a view. It is something I look at but the moment I turn away, it becomes a memory. I can’t seem to capture the essence of what I feel when I look out the window.
It amuses me and it makes me mad by turns.
Anyway, this is a plaque, glazed and ready to go into the smoke barrel.

It cracked, but getting closer, perhaps.

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.
