Ritual Objects is a collection of glazed slipcast terracotta vessels made up of combined geometric shapes. Each of the eight objects have been designed with the same geometric principals, and in this way, are reduced down to a series of symbols. The objects present contrasting qualities of texture.
They began as symbols used in India at the coronation of kings. In Buddhist traditions, the eight symbols are a white parasol, a conch shell, a treasure vase, a victory banner, a dharma wheel, a pair of golden fish, an endless knot, and a lotus flower. These symbols can be found and are used throughout the religion.
Most Buddhists use ritual in pursuit of their spiritual aspirations. Common devotional practices are receiving a blessing, making merit, making a resolution, prostrating, making offerings, chanting traditional texts and pilgrimage.
In Buddhism, symbolic offerings are made to the Triple Gem, giving rise to contemplative gratitude and inspiration. Typical material offerings involve simple objects such as a lit candle or oil lamp, burning incense, flowers, food, fruit, water or drinks.
