These figures are fired using the Raku technique. This is where the pieces are fired quickly up to 1000 degrees centigrade and then taken out of a small kiln when the ware is red hot. The pieces are put into sawdust and left to slowly burn until they are cool enough to take out with gloves.
When cleaned, magical colours and small crazing effects are revealed which give each piece an individuality, impossible to copy exactly.
