Little raku sheep wondering how they got there and what is happening. The Raku firing makes each piece unique and I am never sure exactly how they are going to come out.

I build each sheep by hand with a white clay, which is quite gritty to survive the thermal shocks of the raku firing processes. I biscuit fire my work first in an electric kiln, then glaze the piece with a transparent glaze for the white parts. I then fire them in the raku kiln till about 1000C, before opening the kiln, the sheep are then put in a steel box with saw dust. Since the box is fairly air tight, the combustion of the saw dust draws oxygen from the clay and produces the black colour in the cracks in the glaze, and on their bottom, which is characteristic of Raku.

The quoted price is for one sheep only.

My mom loves them! She says they are very cute and she loved that they came in their own little knitted pouches. I had these shipped to her, so I haven't seen them in person myself, but definitely only praise from mom!

A very soulful little sheep that is brimming with character. The glaze is really lovely, adding a lot of movement and warmth to the piece. The shape and design are very tactile and it sits well with no rocking base. It arrived in its own little knitted pouch which I thought was a great touch and so much better than bubble wrap. Only little thing I’ll say is that it was sent in a jiffy envelope- which our posture did try to force through a letterbox, luckily he thought better and left it instead but perhaps a fragile sticker would help. Really happy to gift this sheep and I know it’ll be much loved.

This is my second purchase from this seller and nothing but positive experiences. Very quick, communicative - packaged very safely and in a cute knit pouch. Also loved the additional surprise! I’m looking forward to my next purchase
