Bring the safari to you with these spectacular ceramic African wildlife art pieces. Abstract and colorful, they represent a small sampling of South Africa's native animals, captured with Raku glazing techniques. The vibrancy and unique quality of these sculptures bring the essence of African life into your home, making you feel as though you have traveled the world without ever leaving your living room!

Each piece was created by a South African artisan named Lorraine Marinkowitz, inspired by the natural beauty of the wildlife in South Africa, and the colors and geometric shapes used by the Ndebele tribe to decorate their homes. Since the manufacturing process only allowed the use of earth-tones, Lorraine developed a special technique to achieve the bright colors and geometric shapes present on her work.

September 1, 2012 - If you love raku, then you'll love these darling little figurines! I have a thing for penguins so I got that one first. He looks so cute sitting on my mantel with my black and white raku pottery that I had to order the ladybug and the hare, too. I haven't yet decided on the perfect spot for my blue ladybug, but I know I'll find it! And the hare will be a Christmas gift.
