Gorgeous Surroundings = Gorgeous Work

By now all of you know that Pottery is a BIG part of my life. I love the way the wet clay feels, how with some turns of the wheel it gets translated into something totally unbelievable, the anxiety I go through after glazing them and putting them in the kiln and finally the joy of seeing my finished piece.

I usually create these pieces at home (see some of my work here). But I have spent many many hours...at times even eight hours at a stretch at a place; pictures of which I am going to share with all of you today. Its called Anandgram and is such a pretty place to work at. I love how happy I feel when I am there. The birds chirping, so many wonderful potters going about their work, greenery all around and time their stands still.

No more words from me. I will let the pictures talk. Enjoy! 
















Did you like the little tour I gave you?

Hey prachi, just checked out all your creations and I must say they are gorgeous...I would have taken a course from you for sure. I just did the basic course and am yet to get to the hang of it. So far..I couldn't get the hang of centering clay on the wheeel. I have a lot of questions, will mail u soon..

Do share pictures of your work. I admire people who can do art with your bare hands.
