WHITE Glazed Seal - Ceramic raku fired with white glaze that crazes with the raku firing & natural smoked clay areas on flippers and nose.
GREY Seal- Ceramic raku fired with mottled white glaze & natural smoked clay areas all over, very randomly applied so finish and amount of grey and white areas will vary from piece to piece.
Size: - 11cm Long
These pictures are general pictures of each item, the crazing and application of glaze on the grey seals will differ with each animal due to the unique nature of Raku.

Raku is a rapid firing technique, adapted from an ancient Japanese firing. A small group of approx 15 pieces are placed in a small gas fired kiln and fired up to around 1,000° c, each piece is then individually taken out of the kiln red hot and placed in a bin of sawdust & wood shavings which instantly combust, the actual finish is then down to careful timing, longer in the air will give bigger heavier crazing, covering quickly leaves areas with no crazing but the crazing itself is very random and this gives each piece its own character, all work is then completely covered in the sawdust and left overnight to cool before being cleaned.
RAKU IS NOT FROST PROOF SO NOT SUITABLE FOR KEEPING OUTDOORS
we have many seals on the beaches of Cornwall and they are a great inspiration for my sculptures
