Seal Pup on Belly white
Such an adorable creature. the raku firing process is used to great effect and the seal is so effortlessly modelled by the artist and then fired in the raku oven, a process which requires immense skill. 11cm long
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.
