This little seal pup just likes to hang out. I had some in my Christmas tree as ornaments this year and they looked great; you could also hang one on the wall, or in a window. I have hung them off of the switch on a pole lamp. Someone who bought one from me at my studio/shop said she loved them because they look like they are in their one-piece baby pajamas! Cute. :)
A seal is approximately 6"x 2 3/4",hangs on a stretchy cord and is handmade by me in my studio. They are raku fired, which gives the glaze a nice crackle. The back is unglazed clay, blackened by the smoke of the raku firing.
My raku pieces are bisque fired once to make them hard, then glazed and fired again in an outdoor kiln. When the pieces are red hot I pull them out of the kiln with tongs allowing the glazes to crackle while cooling for a very short time in the air or on the ground. I then put them in a metal container filled with newspaper which bursts into flames, blackening all the areas I haven't glazed with smoke and filling in the crackle lines. Every piece is different some have more crackle, some less, but all are unique.
