students work

Its class time again. First we made poinsettias as this catches attention first  and this is relatively easy to make without cutters too. Every one want to make in red colour only but I persuaded one student to make in majenta. It is yet to be finished.But I am having problems posting my photos and hope it will be rectified soon.

Hi and hello, its been a while since I last wrote. I have been quite busy with some functions and my classes so I could not blog as much as I wished. Now my classes for air dry clay flowers started rolling I will soon upload all those works. From now onwards, I would like to add links of those works I like,  tutorials etc..
    I would like to start from my close friend and confidante who is a specialist in making ceramic flowers. She has learnt this art in muscat, did a special course in orchids. For those who want to visit I have the link below, you can see one  or two of my works too there.

Freesias  are popularly used in making soaps and perfumes due to deliciously fragrant nature. They come in wide range of colours such as mauve, pink,yellow, red, and bicolours.


When you say poinsettias, you will think of christmas. According to christian legend, they are called flowers of Holy Night.They come mostly in bright red but varieties are in white, cream, light pink, orange etc. The bright colour parts are called bracts and they are actually leaves only. The flowers are small yellow bunches in the centre. Here I have published red poinsettias.

I am dedicating this section of AIR DRY CLAY FLOWERS to that person who wished to remain anonymous. I am grateful for her grace and magnanimity  , she has given me her samples and  some essentials to start with.  Initially I found it hard to mould the petals with hands as these are done without cutters, later I have developed my own techniques. I can say for me this art is more or less self taught.  I have done sweet peas, roses, some fillers to start with. Here I have published alstromaria.

I was introduced to this wonderful art sometime back. In India, this clay art is  still in infancy stages as the availability of clay and tools are scarce and quite expensive. I was supposed  to visit someone to discuss my bread craft, but what welcomed me was these beautiful flowers be it roses ,sweet peas, daffodils and what not. For the first time in my life I am seeing such amazing art.  Since then I was searching for this clay but without success. After some  gap of three years , I had a chance to meet that person again to whom I am forever indebted  for introducing this art.While she was residing in Japan,  she learnt this craft some 25 years ago. What amazes me is that these are done in traditional japanese method i.e without using any cutters or moulds. Here is an example of camelia flower done some 20 years ago.

Each flower is  shrouded by it mystic aura and fragrance.Who doesn't want to admire and enjoy the beauty of it? In this blog I am going to discuss  everlasting beautiful cold porcelain and air dry clay blooms.
       Artificial flowers are the replicas or imitation of natural flowers which need n't be replaced again and again but  retains their beauty neverthless. Since they are becoming popular day by day lots of clays are also becoming available in the market.
      Here I am going to publish these air dry clay flowers and intend to give and share as much information regarding this wonderful craft.
