The Mandala series of pots follow on from the Archaeology series, and continue my exploration of the use of pattern. Very much a work in progress, the Mandala series presently consists of bottles and oriental style vessels that are all decorated with intricate incised patterns highlighted by inlaid coloured glazes.  The circular decorative motif used on some vessels is reminiscent of the circular Mandala symbol found in Buddhist and Hindu religous and meditative traditions.
