Clay Project for College Students

My new student is pursuing Interior Designing and chose Pottery for her college project. I was happy to find that she chose something other than her comfort area as she never had worked with clay before.

Her purpose was to explore clay as a medium of art and create some functional pottery piece for her organizing her tools. I loved the way she implemented the simple clay technique into an attractive, funny, and unique desk organizer. Few other sculptures that she experimented were a designer tile for wall and a Pacman character :)

Sharing few clay projects completed by students at Claying Thoughts!! Love for clay is purely reflected in students' work as each piece is crafted with lot of patience and hardwork. There is lot of thinking behind each piece before it is finally ready for the kiln. These students may not have mastered this art yet. But, they are surely carving each piece like their first masterpiece.

The beauty of handbuilding pottery technique is that they are so simple to learn and let you convert your visualization into reality. I always convey to pottery lovers that clay is not a rocket science, nor u need to be a creative person to create your first pot. All you need is

Clay Sculpture Projects for School

2d sculpture
Clay is more than a child's play. Today schools, colleges, and institutes are also incorporating clay modelling and sculpture as one of the subject in their semesters. Be it an Engineering student, or an architecture or interior designing student or someone learning fashion or accessory designing; everyone needs a medium to express their creativity. And clay is the best medium for converting ideas into 3-D form. At school level, children appearing for their XII class exams also have clay modelling and sculpting as one of their compulsory subjects for board exams.

Sculpture Classes for Designing Students


Abstract Clay Art

With clay, students can make a simple wall art, human figure, animals, pen holder, car models, building structure, house, desk organizer, shoes, accessories or any utility item like pen holder. In the recent past, we have been getting students from college and school who are attending workshops for creating clay sculpture for their final clay project submission. These are comprehensive workshops and students are able to complete their clay projects in few classes.

Sculpture Project for Fashion Designing Students
Its always fun to create clay pieces with own hands. But sometimes, when school and college students lack time, they can even outsource the work to us. We have a pool of pottery students who would love to help and create a clay project. For more details, please call or write to us at clayingthoughts@gmail.com.

Terracotta Incense Holder


I recently attempted to make a clay incense stick holder. Wanted to try something unique...something that brings in the fragrance of flowers with butterflies flying around. So why not have everything in one piece. ..and here is the final visualization :) Also, sharing pics of my previous work in the same category..these have been sold out but still hold a place in my heart.
Happy Claying!!







Creative Workshop for Corporate Employees

creative art for employees
Claying is something that everyone enjoys irrespective of age, gender, profession, and interest. Last month, I got a chance to conduct Pottery workshop at RMSI-ians at their in-house amphitheater. The occasion was Diwali, so everyone wanted to try their hands in sculpting Ganesha idol. And the fun was that no one ever had experience in claying.

It was absolutely wonderful to watch techies coming out of their cubical and decoding the secret of claying. Thanks RMSI for giving us this wonderful opportunity to spread this art form. Its wonderful to see how RMSI maintain work-life balance for employees :)

Happy Claying!!
