A handmade crow/raven sculpture by Denise Ferragamo.

Size: 10.5 inches tall.

I made this raven (crow) sculpture from a light tan stoneware clay, using just the barest of tools; a rolling pin, a simple wooden tool, a bit of old lace, and my bare hands.There are unglazed areas that are enhanced with a wash of iron oxide, along with a wonderful blue around his neck and feathers of a semi-transparent, semi-matte black. Looks beautiful from any angle.

Beginning with a slab of clay, I roll out a slab for the blanket of the crow, pressing the old lace doily into the clay while it's still moist. I sculpt the head and each feather individually, then attach them carefully to the blanket. This is the most difficult and sometimes frustrating part of the process. Since use such soft slabs, sometimes the weight of the clay wants to collapse onto itself. I must time it perfectly to achieve the effect I want. Drying carefully for two weeks before the first firing insures a strong form. I end the process by glazing and firing a second time.

Each of my sculptures is a complete original because they are all individually handmade.

The Crow/Raven Spirit Guide:

Long the source of myth and legend, the crow has conjured much thought and symbolism among many cultures and indigenous people.

The crow is the keeper of all sacred law and knows the unknowable mysteries of creation. The bringer of messages from the spirit world, the crow is also the omen of change. Crow symbolizes the choice to fly toward self knowing and awareness.

As someone who's totem is the crow, you stand in truth, are mindful of your opinions and actions. You walk the walk and talk the talk. The crow is blessed with keen perception and intelligence
