Fat Bird smoke firing session

It has been a damp few days with high winds. This morning  I was grateful to see that the smoke bins hadn’t tumbled over during the night and that the bird sculptures were safe.

They look quite surprised sitting among all that soot and ashes. Time for coffee and a shower, methink.

And here they are, all washed and ready to go.
I’ll upload some new fat bird sculptures to my website in the next few days.
Thanks for looking!



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.
