Lions and Dolphins

These pieces were being made at the Daibutsu Tile Factory in Kyoto for the refurbishment of the Heian Shrine in Kyoto. Even larger dolphins were made for temples like the Todaiji in Nara. Wonderful clay work.

  1. Did you witness the preliminary constructions? If so can you give a brief description of the kind of clay, method of making and drying. It is incredible what is being done there.
