"Glider" - wild fired, wall mounted ceramic sculpture by Hiroki Miura.
This piece was fired using a “wild burning” technique, where the work is baked outdoors for about half a day using rice husks, straw and wood as fuel. Colouring is done by decorating with pigments, minerals and soil before firing.
This adorable figure is designed to hang from the wall and has a wire loop at the back.
Each figure comes packed in a sweet, hand made box, with an illustration of the work hand drawn on the front by Hiroki.
Nb. this is a hand made piece and measurements are approximate.
