Discover this delicately sculpted ceramic egg that has been finished off with a living glaze created by firing the egg in a smoke firing kiln.
When the desired shape has been created the surface is smoothened using a rock, giving it a rich and tactile texture almost resembling a complex wood graining.
By firing the raw clay sculptures in a hand built smoke firing kiln the smoke from the fire unevenly colors the surface giving it a dynamic and interesting complexion.
A delightful detail on its own and even more so as a group.
