Imagery of Nature on Ceramics
It is one of the assignments that I did for my Special project during December.
Working in ceramics was a wonderful experience which I am looking forward to continue.
The task was to see, observe, imitate, study, get inspired and experiment with the various styles that already exist in the ceramic tile making. I went through many beautiful references, where in tiles were painted, carved, embossed and motifs have been build to achieve a larger. That gave an interest to work on mural tiles. Below seen is my second assignment - Illustrating an element from nature on the tiles. I chose an image from my photo albums and started to make illustrations. I wanted it to reflect the way I draw or illustrate. I decided to carve the design so that it appeals to our visual senses. The different levels of layers attracts the sense of touch.

Imagery is a natural, yet special, way of thinking that involves our senses. It is a type of thinking that has particularly strong effects on our psychology. It is a flow of thoughts that includes memories, dreams, plans, visions, feel, touch, vision, imagination, taste, sound, memories and fantasies. It is a visually descriptive or figuartive language that is used to represent objects, actions and ideas in such a way that it appeals to our physical senses.
