#77188 What Do You Get Out Of This Forum Interaction?

Posted by vinks on 12 March 2015 - 07:17 AM

I've been entwined with this forum thru my journey with clay. Joined as naive.... By the passage of days, browsing thru various articles, interactions, the informative knowledge I gathered here is immense. It provided me various ways out to overcome my difficulties working with clay, glazes and overall process.


There are accomplished potters here who are well acquainted with terms, but a self-taught person like me just getting to know the term was accepting a lot... I laugh at times, mere looking back i hardly knew lot many generic terms example "Mishima,Molding,obvara ",which this forum made me understand .Further to add getting engaged with this forum, i was able to to get my first wheel with hands full of sugestions around,what more could i have asked for.


Still miles to go ..but the inspiration i get from here is nonetheless mesmerising which keep making me come back to clay.Salute and thank you to every member of this forum.



Best Wishes!!

#71684 Food For Thought - E - Course!

Posted by vinks on 11 December 2014 - 01:44 PM

Why cannot we have online e courses from this forum.Though just browsing through this ceramics forum provides all the information and  learning.

Even  various forms like DVD,books, videos availability is immense,still it will be more useful if anyone can start off with e-courses on chargeable basis comprising from handbuilding to wheel throwing,which could run for a month or extended period,as per suitability.


I have attended e courses online from famous artist "Diana Fayt" and "Antoinette".It was pleasure to learn from them the various techniques.


It's helpful to people like us, who live in different corners of world and difficult to travel to attend workshops.These online courses will provide more opportunities to learn more and communicate .



Just a food for thought...any inputs most welcome.Me will be the first one to enroll for e courses.



Best Wishes!

"Newbies who should not give second thought to commence to the world of Pottery "

Diving into the clay world,feeling the first touch of clay was somuch immersing
oneself in its own world.
From the corporate world with peer pressure,stressed to the world of ceramics was drifting to an dream world seemed to be the fairy world.
Lot of enthusiasm was required as everyone approached me with negative thougts,why leaving an well organised comfy high profile job,which i quit.

Nevertheless the only support was "Ceramic arts daily",It provide me the daily dose.Futher need to thank the world of Ceramics art gallery who provided me my Mentor too"Mr Mark Chatterly.
Thanks to Linda and Mark.

This is what the first step towards craetivity,will surely lead to enhance my capability to open my own studio one day.

Best Wishes!
