I had an opportunity to visit the Claystation, a Pottery studio here in Bangalore.

It was a happy sight to see the artists (beginners and experts) take on the clay with such enthusiasm and turn it into a fabulous pieces of art. And just to gape at the interesting pieces of art at the pottery studio was something all the more exciting!

To get one’s hands dirty, to focus on a piece of clay, to intricately making a brilliant piece, to forgetting about work-home tensions, to feel the joy of creation gives one a therapeutic feeling and makes the entire experience worthwhile.

So the process of pottery making begins with the artist working on the clay on a potter’s wheel to give it a shape of their imagination. Once the piece is off the wheel (making sure it has a solid base), it is dried. Later it is kept in a kiln(heated at a very high temperature). Once this is done, it can be glazed-this gives it a beautiful texture and color (well it is all about coloring the piece). There you go, your piece is ready. Sound simple eh?!… well certainly not- there is hours of focus, patience, precision and enthusiasm to get a piece of work straight. Kudos to all the artists. I am quite inspired by their dedication.
