The beauty of dissolving


This is how you can re-use old clay. Allow the water to dissolve and break down old structures.

then, you dry the clay slurry on plaster bats and start again.


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.

    You have to love the smile showing up through the melting clay. Hey, any ideas on where I could get my hands on a plaster bat?

    It’s fascinating to watch it go, isn’t it – if you can afford an hour or so to watch it properly. Very meditative!
