Part of the "Still" series. I have been making these meditation figures since 2006. Inspired by Chinese tomb figures, the original inspiration was actually a musician holding cymbals, but I have always regarded them as meditating figures. I hand build these hollow then carve and decorate the surface when it is still wet clay. This meditation figure is carved with a pattern of flowers and leaves circled by transfers of bees. The figure sits with it's feet tucked under it's seat in a kneeling position. 7.5" deep by 7.5" wide and 14.5" in height! I cannot stress enough how unique each one of these figures is.

Surface is a wonderful medley of soft creamy whites, turquoise and black contrast in the carved lines. Gold and green embellish the leaves. This is a lighter, softer glaze palette and I am quite happy with the results. As with all of my sculptures these are meant for indoor enjoyment only.
