Handmade Ceramic Coil Globe

Ceramic Coil Globe..a contemporary art piece for indoors and outdoors!!

This ceramic globe is made of floating coils. The challenge was to keep the coils intact and join them without any support.The coils tend to sag or crack when they are not stacked on top of each other. But, at last I managed to complete this piece. Now, I'm more confident and will be able to handle floating coils comfortably.

This ceramic piece can be used both for indoor and outdoor. It can be hanged, or can be decorated as tableware. It can be used as an art piece or as a lamp. I even tried it as a stand for my painting brushes. It was indeed a happy learning experience for me, till then...Happy Coiling!!

This coil globe is now successfully fired and have come out really beautiful...take alook!!

Handmade Ceramic Mask

Handmade tribal mask made of terracotta clay. I've not used any mold...each bit of this mask is made of different hand building techniques. This time i've tried bit of sculpting apart for slab and coil work.

The most interesting part was shaping nose and lips. Nose looks little sharper...sort of witchy look. Sculpting is quite an interesting technique. You can shape any figure the way you want.  Sculpting sounds little difficult but when the fingers start twisting and tweeting the clay, interesting shapes come up. I’m now eagerly waiting to bisque fire this mask and then paint it with vibrant colors!!

Hand Painted Bottle

Finally, I managed to paint my first bottle. It was a joint effort by me and my mom-in-law and completely inspired by “Bottles Not Empty”.

Though it may not be near to Perfection, but I’m happy that I finally tried my hand in this form of art too….

Happy Bottling!!

An Empty Bottle...Full of Life

Sounds weird but you will fall for this heading when you visit "Bottles Not Empty". 

After going through this site, I've started looking for bottles in my house. I want to try this creative form of art at home though I know that I'll be no where close to it but will definitely try once!! 

It's simply unbelievable that an empty bottle worth few bugs can be turned into a priceless decoration piece. Well, I'm absolutely not promoting this brand but i simply got amazed on seeing this art form!! And I'm sure all art lovers will agree with me!!.

Have a creative day.....Happy Bottling!!
