Pottery Adventures



I had the occasion to learn something that I have always wanted... Pottery!!
and that also from one of New York's extremely popular Pottery studio...Brickhouse Ceramics Arts Centre
Its another matter that just because of my family's nomadic existence I know its going to be very difficult to continue with pottery once I reach India...
But I can always hope, right?
So here are some pictures as well as some notes of my enthusiastic first time pottery endeavors... enjoy!





MUDDY and LOVIN' IT!!

There is no end to things I am passionate about....
I am not called "enthu cutlet" by people who know me for no reason!! 
and the latest passion in my already cluttered, overwhelming, hyper ventilating life, is Pottery...
Pottery is something that I have been very curious about and extremely keen on learning for I think the past five/six years... or maybe more...
I think since the time I kind of got used to the nomadic existence of the Army life...and while my online freelance work was going smoothly... I started wondering...now what?
How nice it would be to have my own little mobile creative studio where I could do a bit of craft...some art and illustrations and maybe some pottery...
make some nice interesting bowls and mugs etc. which had my own style stamp on them?
I have always been fascinated by the interesting colors and forms and creativity... (rest of the post is here)











and this is how they turned out:

Encouraged by the ooohs and the aaaaahs   :-)   of my loved ones who saw my earlier finished pottery pictures...
Here are some pictures that are a work in progress...
all are greenware, meaning that they havent been fired and hence are of "kachchi mitti"....
but I am loving them...
my first few tries of not wheel throwing but "handbuilding"
meaning that they have been built from slabs of clay... (for the rest of the post-click here)
