A unique and beautiful hand-made African 6 piece nativity scene crafted using the Raku pottery technique.

Characterized by hand-molding, low-firing and removal from kiln while still hot, Raku pottery has taken many forms and styles as the medium has traveled the globe. In South Africa, Raku pottery is traditionally a very colorful form of art. These nativity pieces are handcrafted in South Africa and the designs are the originals of the artist.

Joseph stands about 8.5 inches tall.

The ancient Japanese method of Raku firing lends itself to unique African inspired pottery. Each piece is removed from the gas kiln at 950 degrees Celsius and placed in sawdust. The glaze crazing is then blackened by the smoldering sawdust. This processed is largely random and the slight imperfections that appear in the glaze are all part of the attraction and excitement of raku firing.
