Over the years, Jennifer has made us many species of birds. This is the first raven she has made. It is hand coiled with natural clays and slips. Then it is outdoor fired. As usual, her precise incising is outstanding. The natural colors of blues, reds, and yellows are soft and beautiful. The symbolic meaning of the raven in Native American Indian culture describes the raven as a creature of metamorphosis and symbolizes change/transformation. Often honored among medicine and holy men of tribes for its shape-shifting qualities, the raven was called upon in ritual so that visions could be clarified. The raven is the Native American bearer of magic, and a harbinger of messages. This is a wonderful free standing figure by Jennifer.
