This matte black and dark brown ceramic Buddha Hand was created by award-winning Japanese ceramic artist Takeshi Maruyama. "My hope is to create art that holds an aura of dignity, that compels the observer to join their palms together and pray". The dark, matte finish of this piece was achieved using the intricate Japanese 'Kokuto' technique, whereby select coconut leaves are burned inside the kiln among the works to create black smoke, rich in carbon, which soaks into the texture of the clay.

This royal blue ceramic Buddha Hand was created by award-winning Japanese ceramic artist Takeshi Maruyama. When asked, as he often is, Maruyama does not describe himself as a religious man, but rather a man with a fascination for the religious. "My hope is to create art that holds an aura of dignity, that - when looked upon - compels the observer to join their palms together and pray". Takeshi's own perfected mix of ceramic glazing gives it its beautifully deep and glossy royal blue finish. Palms, Hands
