Sold, ceramic torso

So I got an email from an art collector in Sydney who wanted to buy  a ceramic torso he had seen online. My favourite, as it happens. Swift, a male ceramic torso with a bronze effect finish…which took me two days to apply.
So all that was great, except I did scratch my head a bit about how to get it safely from my studio in Hastings, England, to Australia.
And once you start looking for couriers/shipping options on places like uShip, Shiply and other auction sites, you come across so many dodgy outfits, it is unreal. I must have spent a full day online, searching. And the more obvious couriers, such as Parcelforce or DHL, offer no insurance and I have seen the size of their lorries…
Finally Joe, the client, came up with a firm that’ll  undertake to ship it.  They’re called Pack & Send and they’ll insure the parcel as well as pack it professionally. And they offer a door to door service. Happy days.

To see more of my ceramic torsos for sale, please go to my website.

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.
