John Makowski “Bali Om”

John Makowski Bali Om
“Bali Om III”
John Makowski
Ceramic on Board, 12″ x 12″ framed

John said he had been familiar with the “Om” meditation symbol that looks like a bit like the number three with a tail, but found out that there are actually 90+ symbols for Om used in different countries and sects.  He loved this one because he said it reminds him of a man in hat dancing.  He had spent time in Bali and this is the image that fits his memory of the place!
For this piece, and most of his other pieces, John used a technique of using dry glaze on wet clay which he developed himself through trial and error.  He mixes his own glazes and so the colors are unique to him as well as the technique.
