Mindful Present

Fossils are like three-dimensional snapshots created by nature. Inspired by these fleeting moments frozen in time, Neena Jhaveri presses plants into clay and then fires the pieces to create a fossil-like impression when the botanicals burn away. Inscribed with the phrase "Be present," her plate features the form of a cypress branch, a symbol of the enduring power of hope and faith. The design serves as a reminder to pause and connect with nature's own infinitely inspiring designs. Refired with an organic blue-green glaze, the plate makes a serene server for appetizers or an eye-catching accent displayed on its own. Handmade in Winchester, Virginia.

Due to the handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

Born in Ahmedabad, India, Neena Jhaveri has had an appreciation for all forms of beauty since childhood. She followed her father's advice that her university studies should focus on the sciences as well as the arts. Although her passion has always been in the arts, spirituality, and nature, she learned long ago that science, the arts, and religion coexist harmoniously. Today, Neena continues to produce her unique designs as limited edition silk and cotton products (made with natural fibers) and exceptional works of pottery. She finds pleasure in creating beautiful things, and a dream come true in sharing these creations with the world.
