Scratching Puffin Raku
Gower Gallery Description
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.
The size is 12cm high, size might vary due to the nature of the process.
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.
