~ ARTIST BIO ~
Hi my name is Nirinjan Singh!
I am an artist, life long
student, and yoga/meditation teacher.
As you can see from this site, I love to create Udu style drums and other instruments out
It is a medium that I truly
enjoy working with and has been my main focus over other mediums of art.
Although I am just starting to explore ceramics and have much more to learn I have already
won several scholarships and awards. My work has won first place in a collage art
magazine, some of my work is placed in local galleries, and I have won awards in a
few art shows.
I prefer to hand build, via the
coil method, many of my pieces vs. throwing them on the wheel. It seems that the is
more of a connection to the piece and more energy within it when the process is complete.
I like to use traditional methods for creating my ceramic works from hand building
to pit firing techniques.
Many of my themes are earth
spirituality based using the five elements. Each is contained within each piece,
earth...water...fire...air...and ether. For me, hand building brings a stronger
connection with the piece. Other effects that I take into account when making a
custom piece of work is the time of the moon, when and how it is burned by the fire, and
how the glazes melt and bond with the clay.
I am looking to go to Spain
this summer and continue my study of ceramics. So any support you can give me, by
purchasing my work or letting me know of any scholarships in the field of art and/or
ceramics, will be gratefully appreciated.
To all my friends that
supported my efforts and travels last year I send you much love and many blessings,
