Seal pup on belly grey raku
So graceful in water but so comic on dry land this seal pup perfectly captures the loveliness of these creatures. A sculptural ceramic piece using the raku firing 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. 26-28 cms long
