Barb Sachs

Clay artist, Barb Sachs draws her inspiration from the natural forms of the animal world. Barb uses many hand-building techniques in the creation of her animals, but, most notably employs thick sheets of clay, or slabs, which are folded and shaped in an origami like method to produce a hollow, sculptural form – a form which lends itself to the rigours of the raku firing process. The variation of glaze effects that the raku technique allows provides the palette for these creatures and serves to create an aged quality in the work.

These are some samples of Barb's wonderful Raku creations
