Tantri Mustika — 'Rambut Vessel', 2023
This vessel draws its inspiration from the wild serpentine hair of Rangda the demon queen. The vase uses the colour white, traditionally associated with purity and goodness, to represent the forces of good within evil.
Tantri Mustika is a Melbourne-based ceramicist who makes unique and colourful ceramics by incorporating meticulously hand-stained and marbled clays, mimicking characteristics of natural stones. Her interest in the material capabilities of clay can be seen as a catalyst of her practice; producing small batches allows each piece to be unique and one of a kind through the techniques employed.
