This little flat bird is made out of clay. I made a clay bird cast it in plaster to make a mold and used slip ( a liquid clay) poured into the mold to make more birds. Once each bird is leather hard I paint in a black underglaze and then scrape off areas to reveal the white clay underneath - a process called sgraffito. This is then bisque fired to 1000c, glaze painted on then fired again to 1100c to get the shine. Measuring 11cm across, perfect to hang on a wall or even on your Christmas tree :) I have a few in my shop, all cast from the same mold but each individually carved and patterned. Pick up is welcome from Wellard, Perth 6170, please let me know in checkout comment box.  I will refund you the postage on pick up :)
