My introduction to my cookery website mentions about being happy with myself and cooking being a meditative process. It is indeed, but when I am not cooking, I am often sitting in my conservatory, a makeshift workshop where my other meditational processes come alive using quite a contrasting different medium which is Clay!
The process of creating pottery pieces, sculptures using clay, glazes, oxides is no different from creating culinary delights using blends of spices and other ingredients. Both need prep time, a set of recipes, a vision. The outcome of both these processes can be either pleasantly surprising, as expected , or disappointing. Either way, if the process of creating your vision is what has made you happy, then you have achieved your ‘nirvana’ – the meditation process is over!
So, besides sharing my travel and food stories, I would like to share my creations in my ‘play with clay’ gallery.
let me know whether you see any connection between my two creations!
