Foraging for food

I took a walk to some nearby hedgerows to see what was available for my  stir-fry.


I found, from left to right, dandelion, sea-beet, wild chive, three-cornered garlic, primroses and alexanders.
But I only found a tiny bit of sea-beet; someone has found my secret space and picked most of it. Or perhaps it is I who have raided his beet spot in  the past…

Sea-beet. It is also called wild spinach. I really like the taste. Like spinach but kind of soapy and with a tint of salt.
On my way home,clutching my bag of goodies, my back packed up and I got stuck in a hedge.  I had to call a cab to come to my rescue. Luckily they know me by now.
I need to get that back sorted.




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.

    😦 Hope it is easing a bit. When your back really goes it is complete misery.
