Tiny Meditating Baby Buddha figure - Baby Buddha in Raku Ceramics - Spirituality and Meditation - Zen Buddhism
This listing is for one very special miniature baby buddha made in raku ceramics. Just to clarify that this is not a bold, and is hand formed by myself in my home based studio. I am very much in love with the bigger head buddhas, proportions more like a baby buddha. This fella has a nice mark on his third eye, a lovely blue glaze and a very sweet and minimal pose.
Raku is an ancient Japanese Ceramic glazing technique in which the objects are glazed, fired and smoked. There is a great element of the unknown at work and it is very difficult to control the outcomes. Therefore one must really try to have no expectation. During the firing process, after reaching 900 C, they are placed carefully in barrels with paper and wood chips to be smoked. After some minutes, the objects are plunged into cold water. This is what gives them the special iridescence and crackly effect.
