Garden shell, Meditation bowl

145.00

3 x 4.5 x 6.5 inches

These small meditation bowls are pinched and formed from a single handful of clay. It is an intuitive and relaxing process of following and working with the clay to see what will happen!  The clay remains in the hand most of the time with one hand supporting and feeling while the other is working. The result is often surprising and pleasing because it is gentle and slow process where one is simply feeling one's way along. In a sense, it is a collaboration with the clay! With some meditation bowls it has become a challenge to see how thin I can make them.  For the most part, there is no set bottom and they seem to find their own way(s) to sit. In this case the white of the alba impatiens from my garden was an inspiration.
