Delightful farmyard friends to sprinkle (or peck) some joy
Richard has the wonderful ability to capture the personalities of animals perfectly in his work and these hens are no exception. You can almost hear them clucking and ruffling their feathers as they perch perfectly on your bookcase, shelf or mantlepiece.
Just like the Raku Hares and Raku Leverets, the beautiful, sporadic, crackly pattern on these hens is created by the use of the Raku firing technique which sees the pieces removed from the kiln and cooled down to 800 degrees and then put into a mixture of sawdust or paper to create the exquisite crackled pattern.
These gorgeous hens make exquisite gifts as they are all handmade individually and so no two are the same.
