Wish i had more of positive votes for the day..Please,Please increase the positive votes,,cant wait for the next day  :blink:



Going through every day, life happens to everyone but we as individuals/artist here chose to be different. I felt every person/artist here had its own story/ journey with clay, even though accumulated with frustration, limitations,experimentation,we carry on with excitement and let keep this happening every day...
How we choose to respond to circumstances determines our love with clay.
If something gives us great joy, then the craving for that joy does n't allow resting peacefully, we keep going back,expanding our horizons
No matter what circumstances, situations, still we have crossed the bridge to attain HAPPINESS in our journey with clay.  
Whether we were able to succeed or not its irrelevant .what moves us ahead is the obsession we have with clay.Even not the bad results pull us down,We pick them as challenges so that we keep giving the best.
And to go little further:
" Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life".
― Pablo Picasso
Thank you to each one of you for sharing your journey .

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.

#98154 Qotw: Did You Do What You Wanted To Do In 2015?

Posted by vinks on 28 December 2015 - 07:22 AM

And did you get what
you wanted from this life/year , even so?
I did.
And what did you want?

Happiness and the enjoyment of living............



I bid adieu to 2015 with this famous pöem"Daffodil", by "William Wordsworth". :)

I wandered lonely as a cloud

That floats on high o'er vales and hills,

When all at once I saw a crowd,

A host of golden daffodils;

Beside the lake, beneath the trees,

Fluttering and dancing in the breeze"......................(Simple impressions of year ,left with happiness ).



With welcoming 2016

Continuous as the stars that shine

and twinkle on the Milky Way"......Wishing the whole family of CAD community,each member "Happy new Year-2016".

Tyler,for me 


This one thing i do,forgetting those things which are behind..i press toward the mark.........

Äny practice is a practice when its done over a period of time without any gap,steadily ,respectfully,honoring it everyday .Only then does it become firmly established.

#92295 Qotw: Are "kiln Gods" Superstition?

Posted by vinks on 09 September 2015 - 05:12 AM

Thanks Evelyne for sharing this wonderful topic.


If I could reminiscence ,for me I just learnt to believe in kiln gods.....which turned into practice and faith......


I suppose its personal belief that things will turn fine…HOPE…. you have faith,you start believing…..


My kiln god is “Lord Ganesha”, He is the Lord of success and destroyer of evils and obstacles. In HInduism;he is worshipped, or at least remembered, in the beginning of any auspicious performance for blessings.

#91134 Qotw: Is Your Artistic Practice A Product Of Genetics Or The Environment?

Posted by vinks on 20 August 2015 - 07:45 AM

Cant imagine anyone in my family took to arts ,farfar away none into art world..coming from family of engineers,doctors, art seemed beyond expectations...still took to my stride.


I suppose the imaginative words inculcated during childhood(Schooldays)dived me into artistic world....
