Clay Percussion Bottle God and Goddess Udu Style Drum
Click to enlarge

This percussion bottle is held in the lap sideways and the chamber opening holes are played with both hands. The double chamber give this style a lot more tonal possibilities. A turquoise blue goddess is centered on the lower playing hole. Opposite is a leaping god with two white spirals separating them. It is glazed with my matte white glaze. This was fired on edge, sideways, that is why the two unglazed circles on the bottom side.

By covering one or neither holes as your palm strikes them, there are four combinations in pitch of the classic 'doink' sound these hand drums create. A small 3/8inch hole in the top neck allows placement of a microphone for amplification. Wear a wooden ring while playing, and slap the bottle body itself for an endless array of clicks, sounds, and beats you can create! Add a small microphone and then run this instrument through an echo or sound distortion box and you get the rich sounds popular in eastern music and sound tracks.

Made of a double thrown bottle shape, with a wide rim for comfort. Udu means vessel in Nigerian Igbo language, and this style drum was played by women for ceremonial uses. You can add a bit of water to change the pitch, but it really isn't needed. Many of these are a simple bottle with a side hole, but this design offers a much wider sound range and melodic option. When not amplified this instrument creates a soft and subtle sound, great combined with other 'quiet' instruments like flute, rattles, and small drums!

A beautiful sculpture and instrument, about 12 inches tall by 8.5 inches in width.
