This is how I celebrated Earth Day. Cooked food in flameware Tajine pots and sauté pans. Food never tasted this good.

Soda Surprise

Soda Fired OM Pot

This is a soda fired pot. As always, soda firing comes up with some pleasant treats and this pot turned out great.

Ravishing Raku

Raku firing is exciting, expressive, rewarding and fun. This is the fast food, instant gratification equivalent in Pottery. You get to enjoy your art pieces within few hours of firing.

Love the colors and texture.

Speckled Jewel

This is my like and dislike pot. I really like the brilliant metallic patterns on this pot, I love the shape, the symmetry and the feel of the pot. However, the patches / speckles created on the pot is the fire gods gift and not my plan. I cannot recreate this design ever again because this was a pleasant and not so pleasant accident in the chemical process. Nonetheless as they say, the beauty is in the eye of the beholder and I’ll let you like or dislike it for yourself.

As for me, I like and dislike this pot at the same time 🙂

Poorna Kumbha

WP_20160228_006

OM signifies the absolute, it’s the symbol of perfection, its a symbol of luck, its a symbol of completeness.

Ancient Vedic Scriptures declare –

“OM is the imperishable word. OM is the Universe. The past, the present and the future, all that was, all that is, all that will be, is OM. Likewise all else that may exist beyond the bounds of Time, that too is OM.”

Poorna Kumbha in Sanskrit means complete pot. The completeness of OM is the inspiration behind this pot.
