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


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.

Espresso Delight


One more piece out of the soda firing process. The thing that I like about the soda firing is the thin sheen the soda creates on the pot. The patterns on the pot are clearly visible and at the same time they are beautifully laminated / sealed by the soda ash.


Swirling Surprise


The same turquoise color that was used on other pots was used on this one as well. However the gods of the soda firing chose to give me a surprise and this is how it turned up. Nonetheless the beauty of the color is unique and I love it.

Practicing what Krishna says in Bhagavad Gita – “Abandon all attachment to the results of action and attain supreme peace”.

Think in Threes


“Three things matter the most: How well did you love?  How fully did you live? How deeply did you let go? ”  – Buddha

“By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest” – Confucius

“Three Rules of Work: 1) Out of clutter find simplicity; 2) From discord find harmony; 3) In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity” – Albert Einstein

The idea of think in threes came from Donna Potter a very experienced artist and an educator par excellence.
