This little bird was made for rocking! How about giving her a home? She makes a great, amusing little companion on your desk or a fun, unique gift. Several of our customers tell us that they have to smile each time they see their little rocking bird :o)

These sell really fast at our summer art fairs and we often have a customer come back to add another bird or two to their flock. We also make fish and rabbits!

If you do want to buy this for a gift, we will be happy to wrap it in colorful tissue paper and tie a ribbon around it. We can also enclose a message from you.

Some of our customers think that these rockers make a fun paperweight.

She is about 4.5 inches from beak to tail and about 2.5 inches tall. Her body is a wonderful rich turquoise and her wings are a happy olive green. A real day brightener!

We cut out and assemble the bird from slabs of clay.
After bisque firing , we draw the design on the clay with wax. Then glazes are hand applied and the rocker bird is raku fired.

We place the rocker in a specially built raku kiln and heat it until the glaze has melted. Still glowing with intense heat, we remove it from the kiln. This thermal shock causes the glaze to crackle.

Then the rocker is placed into a container of sawdust. The sawdust ignites and produces a smoky atmosphere where carbon is absorbed into the unglazed clay and the crackled glaze.


We personally design, handform, glaze and fire each one.



ROCK ON!
