Bronze effect finishes; ceramic torso

DSCF5688_edited

I’m playing around with finishes at the moment. This ceramic torso has been bisque fired and then I mixed some bronze filler with matte varnish and painted it on to the sculpture. I then polished with wire wool and poured some acid on top of the torso in order to get the verdigris thing going.

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.

    When a piece comes out this nice others may want to repeat the effects so thank you for going to the extra effort of letting others know your processes.
