This beautiful mandala sculpture created by Israeli ceramic artist, Zemer Peled, just vibrates with colorful, textured energy. It makes me want to touch it, to experience all of its different shapes and pieces.

About her art, from her web site:

Zemer Peled’s work examines the beauty and brutality of the natural world.  Her sculptural language is formed by her surrounding landscapes and nature, engaging with themes of nature and memories, identity and place.

She creates her sculptures by using a slab roller to makes sheets of clay which are fired, and then smashed into pieces with a hammer (oh I bet that part is fun!), creating a contrast between soft and solid material. They are then restructured into anthropomorphic and zoomorphic sculptural forms.

Her process reminds me that I can take what I’ve already created (especially some of my less favorite pieces), break them down into small pieces, and re-create them into something completely different and new. Hmmm…that seems like it could also be a metaphor for our individual human experience. I’ll need to go ponder that for a while.

Happy Coloring!
