Fire Speaks through Clay: Creating Life

The Element
Speaks through
This Fired Clay

Being Alive and Free
Being in a state of “ready to die”
Living on the edge
Vitrified !

As young people
We are the Fire element
And it is
Surely Needed
For Change
Cause only through
This Belief
And this Strength
Literally This
Over-confidence
Do
We Create
Changes in Real life!
Not just internal
Personal changes
But Also
External
In Manifest Form

Conscious Change!
I wish
And Dream
Conscious Childbearing!
Is my path now.
This Creative Life
Is Progressing
And Developing
Living this
Creative Life.

The Element

Being Alive and Free

As young people
We are the Fire element
And it is
Surely Needed
For Change

Studio closed for the season!

I’m back in New Delhi.
Safe and sound!

The fire of who we are
As people of this universe
Young and Alive
Strong and Free

Yesterday was the day
I was made to accept “Reation”
From Action and Response
To Reaction?
Is that the New Way of this Earth?

I’m Talking Clay
Accepting and not accepting

Developing Substantially! Choosing Substantial-ability!

Forces of Ecstasy
Forces of Nature
Forces of Human Capability
Forces of Creation and Destruction
All come together

Forcing into Action
Though I have already learned
The Balance
Staying at “Zero”
Acceptance, Love, Tolerances,
Bliss, Fullness, Beauty,
Awareness, Wisdom, Vitality
Yet, I’am pulled and pushed
Into responding and on occasion Continue reading

The rivers are drying
The Earth quakes every now and then
We build dams on the rivers.

I see dry mountains
With new trees
Protected areas.

Been in Dehradun, Uttarakhand, India for the last few weeks. Foothills of the Himalayas.
Visiting cousins and looking for a new space for the pottery studio.
Felt the end of a phase and the beginning of another.

Been staying in this beautiful old house surrounded by trees on the edge of the city.
Rajpur Road, Shehanshahi.

As a ceramic artist and teacher.
I make my little effort towards the environment.
Using and saving electricity, water, re-cycling clay, using food-grade chemicals.

Sharing some photographs and links to some special organizations/events I came across –

It is often said by artists –
‘I’m inspired by nature and natural forms’

Here is some ‘Natural Inspiration’ from the past.

Inspiring photography.
Inspiring Man !
A person who was a scientist (making his own camera), photographer, sculptor, teacher and artist.

In today’s world, it is not often found.
This mixing of the artistic and the scientific.
Of logic and not so logical!

Google ‘Karl Blossfeldt’ to find the most amazingly taken pictures of forms of flowers and leaves.

Karl Blossfeldt (June 13, 1865 – December 9, 1932 – age 67) was a German photographer, sculptor, teacher, and artist who worked in Berlin, Germany. He is best known for his close-up photographs of plants and living things, published in 1929 as, Urformen der Kunst.[1] He was inspired, as was his father, by nature and the way in which plants grow. He believed that ‘the plant must be valued as a totally artistic and architectural structure.’
