This listing is for a custom horsehair raku starfish sculpture.
This starfish is handmade completely from clay. After creating the starfish, it was dried and burnished with a soft cloth to create a smooth finish. Once bisque fired, it was fired in a raku kiln.
While the piece was red hot (about 1400°F), it was removed from the kiln and actual horse hair was burned onto the surface to create the black lines with the rustic reddish color. The piece was later cleaned to leave a smooth finish. Each one is handmade so there are never two alike.
