Stories of the gods told in ceramics

Panchalie Sathirasas, one of Thailand’s most outstanding ceramics artists, will present a completely new theme for her solo exhibition, “Dhevaleela: All Nature Gods”, at Pridi Banomyong Institute from Nov 17-27.

Inspired by images of sculptured idols in historical art publications, her new collection comprises 400 art pieces of gods and goddesses, measuring 5-7-inches each. Hewed from rock, the profile surfaces of the figures have a tree bark texture, as if eroded by wind and water, resulting in a simple and natural beauty.

The stories told in the mythologies of the ancient gods and goddesses reveal their origins in nature and generates a common culture that inspires Panchalie with a respect for their primitive beauty.

From the hundreds of myths and legends, the self-taught ceramic artist evolves a unique style that portrays complicated and lofty deities in an entertaining and invitingly tactile imagery.

Panchalie learned the art of pottery from a Japanese potter and a Canadian potter, becoming acquainted with the school of pottery of Bernard Leach and his followers.

Over the years, she has exhibited in Japan, Hong Kong, Mexico, the Netherlands and Germany. The exhibition will be open daily from 10am-8pm. There is no admission fee. Pridi Banomyong Institute is on Sukhumvit 55 (Thong Lor).
