Namaste- "a greeting with the utmost of respect... a salutation from one to another."
I first heard the word namaste from a musician performing a song she wrote about yoga. She addressed the audience with "namaste", holding her hands together at the level of her heart while bowing slightly forward in an honoring gesture. Offering a loose translation, "The inner light in me honors the inner light in you.” was all it took to stir a place deep within me. Inspired by the spiritual essence of one soul recognizing the energy in another, the Namaste Series was born!
Namaste vessels are created with an optically resonant curve then lined with either gilding, multiple layers of hand-brushed acrylic paint to establish a spiral, or both. Surface treatments are meticulously applied to amplify the interior form, sometimes creating a continuous spiral effect, a soft gradation or even radial burst of color. Each Namaste vessel is unique in the way it glows from across the room, in even the faintest of ambient light, inviting a pause from the rush of life to connect for a moment.
Each piece is a sincere greeting from me to you, with utmost respect and honor, “Namaste!”
