Birds

 

Each bird is one-of-a-kind. The body of the bird is thrown on the wheel, trimmed and a hand built head and tail are added. When the eyes and beak are in place, the bird seems to 'come to life', giving each one a 'personality'. Finally, the birds are meticulously burnished (polished) and fired in a number of ways - smoke-fired, saggar-fired or naked raku fired.
