Bhante Clay Process

My Buddhist teacher died in October 2018. After the funeral I was offered a couple of big buckets of earth which had been dug out for the grave. I gladly accepted it and have set about making Buddhist devotional objects from this clay. Currently, I am making malas (a Buddhist rosary used for chanting mantras) and symbolic alms bowls (the Buddha as a wandering mendicant and monks to this day use a bowl on their alms round to receive food offered by the local community for their one daily meal).
