Clay Lau

There has been a lot happening lately. So much that the acrylics and the canvas has taken a comfortable back-seat for some time now. And you won't hear me complaining!

So what's new?

OOooo now where do I begin from.Well, this started out of a phase I and a friend of mine were going through i-wanna-do-something-awesome-but-i-have-no-effing-idea-what.

So after a week long research on the internet and a couple of phone calls later, from ruling out kathak to cocktail-making we landed here! AHM Ceramics. (till date I don't know what ahm stands for). I will eventually though :D

Here's something I recently made. A box. Very much functional. Just hoping and praying it comes out safe after it is fired. Because from what we have been told, one should never have high hopes. One nasty air bubble in there & c-r-a-c-k goes the hard work :'(

And it gets better when you have company. I can't take credit for the snake bowl by Swadi (yes, those are snakes on top) and the little cute one in the front by Tweety.

The not-so-happy-feet post the sessions

More to come in the coming weeks. Though I admit I crib a little sometimes because I have, sort of, ruined my weekend sleep and I travel farther than what I do for my job on weekdays. But its clay we're talking about, and you can't stay mad at them for too long, can you? 


My Tomato plant :) :)
Yet to reap, but I'm already excited :D 

A month full of souvenirs!

So I get around 15 days off before my new job starts and everyone I know is out on a vacation. The vacation includes places skip that part please! *Green Face*

..and something from The Big Apple

And it's a mere coincidence that the apple is green ;)

Short story

Last month when I received this Chocolate Box, weird as it may sound, the 'Box' part made me a little more happy than the 'Chocolate' part. Here is why..

The chocolate box when it was still a chocolate box.

No more the lid :)


The million dollar blessing!

I have been meaning to write this for quite some time now but today I absolutely had to.
I’m sure a lot of you have noticed how the transgenders/beggars tend to give you an unsolicited pseudo blessing while you're waiting for the signal to turn green. With the age-old, tried and tested 'tum dono ki jodi salaamat rakhe, do rupay dedo', the real jodis in the vehicle could feel blessed and give out a rupee or two. However, there aren't always the jodis travelling together, are they now? But clearly our roadside blessing-givers pretend to not know that. Every 2 humans together, anytime, anywhere, are a couple for them. A potential rupee bag.

A few months back I & one of my same-sex-friends were blessed with the same brilliant blessing. Yes, shocking as it may sound but according to her(?) we were a couple. We laughed our guts out trying to figure out if she(?) did get the joke. A negative.

Back then it was a friend, someone I could share a monstrous laugh with. Today, however, was the driver! Now, the routine is he first drops my dad and his colleague to work and further drives me to my office. When they get off the car (my dad & his colleague), I never bother taking the back seat. Unnecessary. So, today, this woman knocks the window and there comes the unexpected blessing! At this point I so want to burst out laughing again but try hard not to. I, fortunately, had my headphones on & so it was easier for me to pretend like I didn’t hear a thing. On the other hand, the clearly embarrassed guy started honking *haha*


Be nice. Seriously.

Acrylic on Canvas.
Here comes a quick new update. Nothing that I haven't done before; except for the green eyes. Besides, I've always loved this genre - puppy-cute flowers, dreamy eyes, pink cheeks. SO Greeting-Card-ish!

The mind ought sometimes to be diverted that it may return the better to thinking.

Acrylic on Canvas.
I've been wanting to paint something like for ages. Something creepy. Something ancient.
..and oh! It has one of my favorite flowers in there - Parijat :) (Nyctanthes arbor-tristis)

From Rajasthan with love- II

Something that perhaps every mother-daughter does :)

..and the antique metal fan is just so cute! Ideally should work on batteries, but doesn't :)
