Scratching Puffin Raku
A wonderful homage to one of Wales' favourite birds. This puffin is such a comic yet artistically stunning piece of sculptural ceramic with the raku firing used to great effect across his breast. 12cm high
Raku is a very difficult technique the piece is taken out of the kiln whilst very hot and dropped into a bed of wood shavings and sawdust, the crazed finish is determined by experience and timing, but every piece is different.
