The Labyrinth Plate

All Moolamalas have been formed on a very special artpiece – the Labyrinth Plate. As a potter, I’ve always enjoyed making what I love, and labyrinths have been a long-time obsession of mine. When I came to make pots at Gaya Ceramic Arts Center, I found the perfect finish for these labyrinth plates – the WOOD FIRE! Finally, these plates felt DONE.

Arranging stones and seeds on a labyrinth place before stringing together... this allows me to visualise how the finished mala will look like, and lays out the 'path' I will follow when knotting the mala.

These plates have become such an essential tool in my mala-making practice… and it is a joy to find a practical use for something which I had thought was ‘just’ a sculptural piece!

If you would like to own your own labyrinth plate, contact me and I will show you what labyrinths are in stock at the moment, along with a price quote.
