Workshop on the potters wheel with Nicola / tečaj lončarstva z Nocolo

 

Moj italjanski prijatelj in učenec iz Vicenze, Nocola, se uči dela na lončarskem vretenu, zelo nadarjen in ustvarjalen mlad umetnik.

My Italian friend and student from Vicenza, Nicola, learning how to work on the potters wheel, a very talented and creative young artist.

Workshop for blind and partially-sighted people / Delavnica za slepe in slabovidne

 

Nekaj utrinkov iz delavnice s slepimi in slabovidnimi… Poletje 2012 v sodelovanju z dolenjskim Društvom slepih in slabovidnih Novo mesto. Bilo je zelo ustvarjalno vzdušje, presenetila me je njihova spretnost in občutek za oblikovanje, celo na lončarskem vretenu…. Vsi smo uživali 🙂

Some nice images from a workshop with blind and partially-sighted people in summer 2012, in cooperation with the Novo Mesto Society of Blind and Partially-sighted people. It was a very creative atmosphere, and I was surprised at their talent and sense of design, even on the potters wheel…. We all had a great time. 🙂

 

Nove keramične skodelice / New ceramic cups

 

Spokojnost in občutek brezčasja ob grajskem ribniku nekega sončnega jesenskega popoldneva….mi je ponudila idealno sceno za fotografije mojih novih keramičnih skodelic… Očarana sem bila nad harmonijo in skladnostjo skodelic z ozadjem…

The tranquility and timeless feeling by the castle pond on a sunny autumn afternoon offered me a perfect scene for taking pictures of my new ceramic cups…I was impressed by the harmony of the scene, how cups merged with the background….

Novi unikatni keramični izdelki / My new work

Kaj je lepšega, kot odpreti peč polno novih še vročih keramičnih izdelkov…..z nekaj novimi glazurami, ki jih lahko kombiniraš s starimi in dobiš nove barve, učinke in končni videz predmetov. In pri fotografiranju se ti pojavijo nove kombinacije, ideje in rešitve…..nikoli končan proces ustvarjanja in igranja.

It is always so exiting to open a kiln full of new, still hot ceramic works… with some new glazes, which you can mix with old ones, you can get new colours, new looks and effects. And while taking pictures of them, you might get new ideas, combinations, solutions…. never ending  process of creativity and play.
