Lion – Raku pottery


Hand painted raku pottery from South Africa. ¬†This cracked ‘look’ is achieved by taking the piece while still hot out of the kiln and let it cool in sawdust or leaves, letting it smoke for a while. ¬†Exposed clay blackens and the glaze takes on a distinct pattern, unique to each piece.

Approx 12cm high, each piece differs in colour and pattern.
