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

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

Andretta Pottery – another studio in the Himalayas

Andretta3
Andreta2

Visited friends yesterday.
Road trip, some 50 Km to Palampur area, to a small (but famous!) village called Andretta. It’s on the tourist map, thanks to the Shobha Singh Art Gallery and The Andretta Pottery Studio.

We do a day trip from Dharamshala to Andreatta as part of the 21 day workshop on meditation and pottery.
It’s an interesting experience to sit on traditional kick wheels and use terracotta clay. In a very village style environment!

Andretta is a production studio which also teaches pottery during a 3 month workshop once every year. This is more than just a workshop, as you get to stay in a beautiful house in the village with Mini and Mary. The house is filled with books on pottery, pots from great potters from around the world. Mansimiran Singh is the son of Gurucharan Singh (the father of pottery in India). Here is also one of the only museums on the theme of Pottery in India.  A small shop where you can pick up pots, cups, vases is a treat for all the regular tourist groups visiting.

There is also a toy train that has a station at the nearby village – Panchrukhi (2Km from Andretta)

In Andretta is also a lovely mud building (made in the traditional mud construction styling) used as a writer’s retreat. Norah Richards was a British lady, far ahead of her times. She came to India and had a dream of setting up an artist community in this village. Here a little history about the place –
