The girl in a red dress is made from Ashraf Hanna stoneware clay fired to 1000 C for the first firing. Wooden dowling was placed in the legs for support which burns out in the first firing. She was then painted with underglaze and oxides and a glaze added to the base. Nichrome wire was then placed in the legs to replace the dowling as this is heat resistant and will provide support in the second firing up to stoneware temperature 1200 C.

I was inspired to make this little girl clutching her doll after seeing a little african girl whilst working in Tanzania playing with her rag doll.

I hand build wildlife sculptures from clay which are then finished with oxides, underglazes and sometimes lustre and gold leaf. The sculptures are high fired to stoneware temperature so are frost proof and can safely be left outside in the garden My inspiration comes from animals around me in the Cumbrian countryside where I live and having worked in Tanzania some of my pieces have an African theme.
Each sculpture is individually handmade so no two are alike making them a unique gift for someone special
