This Owl is made of clay and sculpted one at a time. After drying for a week it is bisque fired and then ready to be glazed and fired a second time in my custom raku kiln. Raku is done outside under a lean-to as it produces smoke in the final firing. The owl is taken red hot out of the kiln at 1850 degrees and placed in a container with sawdust and whole oats and newspaper. The fire interacts with the copper in the glaze and the unglazed bottom of the piece is smoke colored. The copper gaze is always unique as the fire licks the surface and creates a pattern.
