“The only way to be one with the creator is to be in some moment of creativity, when you are lost. The potter is lost in making his pottery; the potter is lost while working on the wheel. Those are the peak moments, where you touch God, where God touches you.”
Osho World Galleria opened “Clay with a Soul”, an exhibition of Studio Pottery from the 3rd of September, 2010, in a continuation of the series of Art exhibitions that is being organized over the years. Clay with a Soul is a show by artist Meena Vohra. Renowned Sculptor K.S Radhakrishnan launched the exhibition at 6.00 pm on Friday, September 03, 2010. The show will conclude on 20th September.
The Galleria is known as a center of innovative high-fired stoneware - in a combination of functional as well as sculptural ceramics. On display are the works of several artists – both the seasoned, well known and the promising, up-coming ones.
“Clay with a Soul” is an extension of the Galleria’s endeavor to bring aesthetics and art to our daily life, providing pottery for everyday use, to serve food and drink as a ritual of sharing and celebrating the small things in life, to bring festivity to every moment of our lives– the whispering of wind through the bamboos, the tinkle of a chime, the warmth of togetherness. . .
The exhibition showcases diyas, oil-burners, bowls, platters, Vases & Urns, Incense holders, Bells & chimes. The pieces explore various glazes in aqua hues of blue & green and the earthy tones of beiges & brown, also is the remarkable use of certain nude shades of ivory & whites. The use of patterns such as bamboo, waves & ripples and simple lines along with the play of colors create a very ‘Zen’ appeal for each of the piece.
