Polar Bears are an endearing creature, beautiful with its thick white pelt, elongated snout and black nose.  This creature is a perfect design for roaming the frozen ocean, their immense paws distributes weight perfectly on thin ice.



The Polar Bear is a wonderful animal to express through clay.  Discovering shape and a dichotomy of  movement; lumbering stroll, agile grace, and immense strength.


The Polar Bear has become a poster child for the tragic repercussions of the melting polar caps.

One could  parallel  the fragility of clay, and the tempestuous nature of  Raku to further express the precariousness of our warming planet and the survival of the Polar Bear.


A polar bear nose; a machine of incredible sensitivity – can smell a seal kilometers away.
