From the lovely green ferns about to unfurl in the garden or the patterns on my finger tips, the water gushing down the drain or the galaxies high above my head; they are everywhere. Spirals.  People have been incorporating them in their sculpture for many thousand years, and we do so still.
This is Swift, a male ceramic torso

The size of the sculpture is 51″ x 40″ and it can either be hung on a wall, or

…stuck on a plinth. Instead of glazing, I used bronze filler and graphite powder  mixed with matte varnish and painted that on. Then I spent many happy hours polishing back with wire wool to expose the bronze bits

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.
