Ceramic Plaques

So I am looking at the view from my studio window. Again. And I just cannot see it.

I can see my thoughts about it, all right. It is beautiful. The cherry tree is in full bloom/it is autumn and the cherry tree is loosing its leaves.
The English Channel is grey/blue/choppy/calm, the fishing boats are out/they are coming in, and there goes my neighbour.

Anyway, here is a thunderstorm over the English Channel.

I wish I could stop making sense. I’m far too attached to making sense. It stops me from seeing what is there.
How do you learn how to see?



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.

    Drawing or painting makes you see. But ultimately people stop seeing after a while. Look for a long time (even when you think there’s nothing to see) or go away for a while and when you come back it will be like new again and you will see. Rambling thoughts.. haha..
