Raku fired blackbird
This hand made little black bird sculpture is one of my own personal favourites. Smooth and tactile to hold, he’s Looking slightly up and is full of character!
The mat black coloration is created by the carbon adhering to the clay when placed at 1000 degrees Into hardwood shavings. His little orange beak has the distinctive raku fired crackle effect created by the rapid heating and cooling of the glazed areas during this ancient firing technique.
Length from beak to tail: 20 cm
Not suitable for outdoors as water may get into the fine raku crackles and expand with the frost.
