In Topic: Qotw: Which Topic Did You Like The Most?

11 March 2016 - 06:51 AM

Evelyne,I would start by saying I got hooked up with QOTW,everytime.
 
Nothing specific, rather I liked all of them….. all were thoughtful and moreover the questions always put me probing myself(mind and soul searching).
 
I would be happy if you keep continuing on this.

In Topic: Qotw: Is A Potter's Life Simple?

"Its we as humans; who make our life complicated",be it any profession hardships follows so for Potters too.

 

 

Let us then be up and doing

With a heart for any fate

Still achieving still pursuing

Learn to labor and wait......(Longfellow)

 

Nonetheless,Its we who simplify and make it beautiful.


In Topic: Teaching Children.... Any Advice?

Let her feel the clay before any instructions or making her learn basics.

 

Kids are very curious to know about wheel..even expose her how wheel functions,clockwise,anticlockwise and how fast/slow the speed…..then goes the basics…further let her enjoy step by step.

Clay is such a wonderful medium liked by most of the kids.I,picked this picture from net.I find there is somuch magical about kids when they are absorbed and playing with clay,they express it so differently and so meaningful.

"Every child is an artist "...by Pablo fits so perfectly here.

 

Only a child sees things with perfect clarity because it has not developed all those filters which prevent us from seeing things that we don’t expect us to see.
