Sabine and Khatri at the Talking Clay Ceramic Studio

 

New students at the Talking Clay Studio last month. A lovely family of 6 visited the studio. A mix of Nepali and Swiss folk. Of varied age group. It was a first for the studio to welcome young people. 2 of the family are young and learnt the 3 basic handbuilding techniques – Moti (11) and Mary (15). It was absolutely delightful to show wheel work to Sabine and Khatri (Catharine). The 2 swiss sisters. They loved clay work and enjoyed finding a new activity to do together. They hope to learn further in Nepal/Switzerland. Here are some pics of the time we shared and their creations. You can see some of the work they are involved in in Nepal on their website www.himaal.org

Ceramic Fest 2016

Ceramic Fest 2016 in New Delhi. We displayed paired tumblers and platters.

Glazed alike, these paired tumblers & tea cups maintain their uniqueness/individuality because of their different forms/shape.

This is one of my favorite topics to touch upon.
The universal which makes us all one and the same.
And the individuality which makes each of us special and different.

Sharing the Studio in Dharamshala

Very happy to have had Samira and Yannick over at Talking Clay Studio in Dharamshala for a week. Samira found us through Google, while looking for a place in the Himalayas where she could pot and her friend Yannick joined the 7 day beginners course.

It’s our first time welcoming people to the studio. We have always envisioned sharing this beautiful studio space and hope this is just the beginning of such happenings.

We had some amazing conversations through the 7 days. About movies/books/news and their impact on our minds. If creating movies is predicting or defining the future? About living in a community space. The hierarchy, politics and religion of such living. Being choice full versus going with the unconscious heard or whatever flow is available.

 

Yannick shared that he is on a journey to gain more knowledge and inner wisdom. Samira can’t wait to open her own studio in Dheradun.
