I believe this particular Raku pottery cat was made in Africa. Quite heavy for it's size, 5-in tall, about 4-in long and almost 3-in wide. This cat is in excellent shape with no damage that I can see.
Incised in the bottom is the letter B. Also as you can see in the picture, the letters DB in the glaze.
This is what I have read about Raku style pottery.
Raku refers to the name of a family of Japanese potters from 16th Kyoto who created the style.
The ancient Japanese method of Raku firing lends itself to creating unique African-inspired pottery. Each piece is removed from the gas kiln at 950 degrees C and placed in sawdust. The glaze crazes are blackened by the smoldering sawdust. This process creates slight imperfections that appear in the glaze and are all part of the attraction and excitement of Raku glazing. The colors will vary for each piece.
I appreciate and thank you for taking the time to look. Have a wonderful day.
