A distinctive character that looks like he may have flown out of a Kenneth Grahame novel, grabbing a spot of feathery lunch on route.
This flying-enthusiast fox is a joyful addition to any mantelpiece, book shelf, or wall. Hand built and fired in Buckinghamshire, his crackle glazed ears, chin and snout are creating using the Raku firing method. Raku is an ancient firing technique that was used traditionally in Japanese Tea Ceremonies. It was developed by potters in the USA during the late 50’s and from there it has evolved to what it is today. The pieces are taken out of the kiln to cool to 800 degrees and then put into a mixture of sawdust to create the crackly, variant Raku pattern that is just so exquisite.
As each piece is handmade, no one is the same. This delightful fox can be acquired with or without his trusty goggles and with or without feathers in his mouth.
