This unique vase embodies the peace and tranquility of meditation. A variety of faces are carefully carved and pressed onto the wall of the vase before it dries. Each face expresses repose, introspection, serenity, and an altered state of consciousness. Carved into the background clay are whirls and flowing lines, suggesting energetic patterns from which the faces emerge. It is about 7 inches tall.
I have recreated this vase several times, as it is popular with my customers, but each version is one-of-a-kind. The faces emerge in different parts of the vase, and their expressions also vary depending on the amount of pressure I use as they are positioned. Vase heights also vary. Each vase is a unique experience, not unlike meditation.
