More Fat Bird ceramic sculptures

Another clutch of Fat Bird sculptures from the smoke bins this morning. All I need to do is clean them up.

It is so exciting to see what is hiding beneath the soot. I really like this one.

I use manganese, copper and natural iron oxide; the yellow is manganese.


I like the way the red iron oxide mixed with copper and manganese oxide almost creates a rusty look as if the bird sculptures have laid hidden in the earth for decades

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.
