Miss Gray is one of the 5 Birds of Happiness finished in an alternative firing technique called Saggar. Carefully arranged selection of easily flammable organic materials created the earthy colour palette and distinctive patterns on her previously smooth and polished surface making her even more tactile.
This Bird of Happiness was created to evoke childhood memories of freedom and happiness. Hand modelled in soft chamotte clay, hand polished with a semi precious stone and slowly dried on warm summer sunshine it was fired in a ceramic kiln at the temperatures of about one thousand degrees celsius and then finished in saggar firing. It went through several transformations and just like all other Birds of Happiness is entirely unique and one of a kind. There is a life happiness in every Bird of Happiness, born out of synergy of human touch, clay, water, air and fire. Holding a Bird of Happiness in our hand we feel one with the nature.
