Is it a bird?

No it's an angelic, spouted form and was my first attempt at raku firing.
The term raku is derived from the Japanese Kanji character meaning "enjoyment" or "ease"....and I certainly enjoyed myself!
It's a form of Japanese pottery characterized by low firing temperatures and the removal of pieces from the kiln while still glowing hot. The pot is removed from the hot kiln and placed into a container of sawdust to stain the exposed clay surfaces with carbon.

I'm making some this week Martha.
I can't wait to get the Raku kiln roaring and start battling with the fire gods again!
