Ceramic plaques, part II

Another smoke firing dustbin billowing throughout the night at Dudley Road studios.
I love the smell of smoldering sawdust and dry leaves! blog smoke firing 2_edited

Not too terribly pleased with the result, though. Out pf 7 ceramic plaques, two cracked and three were really not that great.
However, I think I quite like the remaining two.

I was almost going to throw this plaque away because the red frame was so very red. I only popped it into the dust bin at the last minute because there was an empty space. And now it is one of my favourites.

This is how it used to look before. I love the way the smoke sometimes tie the colours together.

The second plaque also has a red frame. In parts, anyway.

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.
