In Topic: Qotw: Mirror, Mirror On The Wall?

29 September 2016 - 02:29 AM

Reminds me of the poem “Mirror mirror on my wall”,reformed in my version (on a" humour note")..

 

I, just want to be fabulous, pretty and tall (all my pots refer me as saying )…

 

Mirror mirror, if i change the shape ,

Maybe someone will like the arched

 

Mirror mirror, don’t you see?

What you show is ruining me (I say no not this another shape/dimension)..not this till infinite pots are dumped..

 

Mirror decided to reply:

 

Don't you think you see?

It is not true..this misery is within you..find oneself what you want to build rather you”ll lose all control..

 

Thereafter distance myself from “Mirror” I have only my image and my Soul ..

 

"Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes ,art is knowing which one to keep".


In Topic: Qotw: What Other Things Beside Clay Have You Mastered?

15 July 2016 - 05:35 AM

What a question…had to search my soul what did I mastered.… soul whispered

 

The art of bouncing back........

Build

Destroy

Rebuild

 

Mastering anything is hard work, harder than what I do….

 

Carrying a heart that never hurts and carry a smile that never fades(wish the whole world could master this)


In Topic: Qotw: What Form Do You Use To Experiment On A New Aesthetic?

07 July 2016 - 07:03 AM

I prefer  simple forms added with different techniques can do wonders/enhance the form….its again taste and preferences change as per the rainy day.The concept of decorative explores the ideas of enhancing a form induces me the following techniques: sgraffito/geometric patterns/pierced…

 

At times my aesthetic goes to the base of pieces…prefer bases to be decorated,doodling on different forms is a great warm up exercise for me.

In Topic: Qotw: Are You Already "thinking Big"?

02 June 2016 - 04:55 AM

In the previous threads too, I have had always mentioned and given great significance to the online courses. Come may not, I prefer joining these courses.It provides great insights Yeah, me have attended THINK BIG - 2 …which according to me is a perfect package covering from taking better photographs to art of pricing to generating sales..you think/imagine and you get here…Its nostalgic at times to hear individual artists (medium is audio/video)along with their innovative tips,experiences.

 

I feel we need to think out of the box,,,,,we keep sticking to classroom atmosphere……There is always a beginning that looks promising At least try to change the concept of mind or ring in to any online class and see the change.…where technology is impacting in every field these days and we're well connected through this technology ,so why not these online classes.If we are growing we need to be out of our comfort zone.

I define and look at the brighter aspect of these online workshops….ie…Quality interaction is key, enormous suggestions from all walk of life, who are enthusiastic to share their knowledge.
Looking forward to Marcia’s online classes….all my best wishes…
..

 

Life is one endless school.These workshop take us back for being a student always learning always getting better.

Dh Potter:Videos can always be downloaded and saved.

Joseph:agree we need to have basic fundamental online classes which is missing maybe sooner some pick this thread/idea or maybe you can come off with these classes.
