Carved during a live sound meditation performed in my home by my very dear friend, Xylem aka Donovan Moran.
Etched with "Don Live" on base
Holds 16-20 fluid oz
Dishwasher & Microwave safe (although I recommend hand-washing all things handmade)
Made with High-Fire Moon White clay with Kyanite from Highwater Clays, fired to cone 6.
Shipped with compostable/biodegradable corn starch packing peanuts (they dissolve in water) and recyclable cardboard.
Unifying humanity is the spine to my pottery making.
I want my works to aid in healing, meditation, trance
induction, and to help maintain curious, open minds.
My approach to pottery stems from my spiritual practices.
I am journeying towards enlightenment through vegan nutrition,
meditation, yoga, pottery making, clay materials, urban homesteading, and design. I utilize intricate carving and inlay techniques on the surface of my mugs to create geometric mandala patterns with radial balance to symbolize the cosmic diagram of life.
As a small North Carolinian urban homesteader, I intentionally surround myself with the hand-grown and handmade. I live as self-reliably as I am able. Reducing my waste through composting, rain harvesting, up cycling, repurposing clay, and recycling helps me remain centered as an artist.
As a spiritual vegan potter, I have dedicated my life to animals, nutrition, self-discovery, and creating handmade objects.
Each Mandala mug is filled with loving light from my North Carolina home to yours.
Peace and love.
