Raku Ceramic Animals

{SummaryTitle}

Inspired by Native American fetishes and Inuit art, Ruth Apter’s ‘One Hundred Horses Raku’ ceramic animals have a spiritual quality that make them delightful to see and to own.

The final part of creating one of Apter’s raku ceramic animals is the raku firing. In the raku firing step, each tiny sculpture is taken from a hot kiln and placed in sawdust. The sawdust burns, depriving the glaze on the piece of oxygen. The process is called reduction. It is in reduction that the amazing colors and patterns typical of raku magically appear on the glazed surface.
