Whether you believe the climate is changing or you believe that climate change is caused by humans or neither, I think it is important that we protect the environment. So...I am going to support WWF-Australia by donating $50 for each polar bear that I sell. The polar bear's environment is being affected by the loss of sea ice and I don't want to see polar bears dissappear!
On an artistic note, naked raku, the process I use to make these bears,is a western version of the traditional Japanese Raku method of firing ceramics in a reduction kiln. This causes cracking and flaking of the glaze which is eventually removed. This process provides unique markings for the bears.
