I meant to make a pair of these lovely doves, but just wasn't feeling it when I started on the second. She is strong on her own. I sculpted her from a gorgeous stoneware clay ( my favorite for raku firing), a pale brown with tiny speckles. Next, I bisque fired her and then applied a white crackle raku glaze. When working with raku firing, you always have to keep in mind that things might not look exactly like what you were planning for, in this case she was exactly as I hoped.
