Man Vilakku (Baked Clay Diyas) – II

The five corner diyas add a more festive look when decorated. Though the round diyas are the traditional preferred ones, five corner diyas have their own unique beauty.

Bright colours, glass stones, beads and ceramic decorations,… any kind of decoration suits these diyas.

These diyas can hold five cotton wicks. They need more oil, but give more brightness. This is one such diya my sister and I decorated. We buy plain clay diyas from local potters and decorate them using various mediums like threads, beads, glasses, paints and glitter.
