This pottery painting was done some months back, when I went home. It was the time of torrential monsoon showers in Kerala, which made outdoor life miserable and almost nil. Being confined to home, I soon grew bored & decided to lavish my skills on the poor pot :) I found these Mughal paintings printed on some coffee mugs & thought it would be interesting recreate the same on pottery. Below are the 3 different views.

Found ur blog thru' orkut.Nice blog.Nicer art work on tht pots!A thumbs up from me!!

@jayesh: chip graffiti sounds real interesting..now that gives me ideas..hope my company dont throw me out ;))

@maneesha: 'laughing animals' were done to help out( rather compelsively hehee) our 201 friend. mouth part of pot was deliberately left out so that the natural pottery look is retained:) i forgot to immerse the pot in water beforehand this time too ;)

@ps:thanx ps..feels good bcoz it comes from you, a poet,artist & thinker !!!!

"...I found these Mughal paintings printed on some coffee mugs & thought it would be interesting recreate the same on pottery.."
And you named it as 'Potpourri of Colours'(is that the name of your art or just the name of your blog or both??)Whatever it is, your sense of selecting the a name is damn good.
Over and above that you have done a wonderful..i mean really
