Mandala as an art form first appeared in Buddhist art from the first century B.C. The mandala is a geometric pattern that represents the cosmos metaphysically or symbolically; a time-microcosm of the universe, but it originally meant to represent wholeness and a model for the organizational structure of life itself, a cosmic diagram that shows the relation to the infinite and the world that extends beyond and within various minds & bodies.


This Yantra Mandala focuses on the circular nature of life and the universe. Life evolves and develops from the centre outward, and these symbols serve to depict that evolution.


I have created a series of clay mandalas using soft water colour effects and washes which I then fire to 1220 deg. C to achieve a glazed finish which will never fade.

During my time in the Middle East I have developed a passion 
for the architecture of the ancient Islamic civilizations in places like Iran, Iraq and Syria. I attended workshops organized by the Art of Islamic Pattern and The Prince’s Foundation in London to study the art of the Mamluks in Cairo, the Moroccan zelige patterns in Fez and the beautiful architecture of the Umayyad Caliphate in Cordoba & Seville. I recently set up my own studio here in Dubai and installed a pottery kiln to indulge my passion for hand carved ceramics which I bisque fire and glaze, sometimes using the ancient luster techniques perfected by the Ilkhanids in Iran in the 13thcentury.
