What might be hovering nearby high up in the white pines trailing the wolf pack?  Ravens!  Here is a great interpretation of the infamous raven.  The artist was inspired by Inuit carvings, Southwest Native fetishes, and the ravens that surround her studio.  She created the design in honor of Kenojuak Ashevak, one of the great Inuit artists of our time.  Truly a handcrafted one-of-a-kind raku-fired sculpture to remind you of the workings of our complex ecosystem. The raku-firing process is unique in itself: After sculptures are formed, they air dry for one week. Then the pieces are bisque fired, glazed and final fired. During the raku-firing, small batches of pottery are low fired to between 1,850 F and 1,950 F degrees and removed one at a time from the kiln, while still red-hot. Each ceramic piece is then placed in a container of horses' oats and sawdust, which burst into flames and interact with the glazes and unglazed areas of the pottery.  Each sculpture is 3" long and stands 2 3/4" high.  No two pieces are ever alike!
PLEASE NOTE:  Sculpture colorings may vary from picture!  Expect darker gray tones with subtle highlights. Due to the intense labor and amount of time put into each distinctive piece, it will be a treasure for years to come.  Limited quantities are made by the artist.
