“Potters at the Open Palm Court”- (6 Potter show) at the India Habitat Centre, New Delhi, 2007
The pieces exhibited here have been made using the ceramic firing process of Raku.
It is a pottery technique that has its origins in 16th century Japan, but has seen significant changes in the West since. In this technique, fire and smoke leave their marks on the naked body or molten glaze…making each piece completely unique.
In this show, the series of vases is called “Silent Fold”…signifying the non-rigid and yielding nature of clay. It is without any ego and gently folds to surrender itself completely to the infinite possibilities of creation.
Any rigidity or resistance within would result in it getting cracks in its own being.
