Kingfisher sitting on a log. Hand built from craft crank clay . High fired overnight to 1000C in an electric kiln then coloured with colourful underglazes and oxides then fired twice more to 1200 C to achieve the deep colouring. The log has been finished with volcanic glazes to give texture.
Sculpture is 18 cms tall.
8 × 6 × 31 cm
Occasional light dusting
I originally made a kingfisher as a commission recently and was pleased with the result so I decided to make another one on a slightly thinner taller log and I think this has worked well. They are very elusive birds and usually you just see a flash of blue along the river bank.

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
