Thank You

Being a small artisanal ceramics studio, we do not have any marketing budgets and we rely heavily on the word of mouth. We are hence very grateful for the interest in featuring us!

A big thank you to all of you and we send you our love,

Pick Junction | June 2016 Huiwen & Kenneth, Studio Asobi

“…We see life both as a spiritual journey of exploration, and also as a joyful adventure, and our decision to become potters is a big part of this adventure we are embarking on as a couple. We also want to embed this spirit of a playful journey into our work, lovingly naming each vessel we create and weaving in the dreamy beauty of haikus into our art. We create our ceramic art as a reflection of our spiritual journey of faith, using clay to express our love, our hope, and our struggles. We also run introductory ceramics workshops from our cosy home studio.”

“… we left our corporate careers to experiment and live out a key question – is there an alternative way to live life in a busy city like Singapore that is filled with inner peace and joy?”

Sassy Mama SG | May 2016 Five Easy Design Tricks to Reinvigorate Your Home

“…A beautifully plated meal, a well set table and sparkling glasses can whet your appetite as much as the food itself. For instance, these quirky mushroom-like dishes could hold salt, pepper or butter while adding that extra something to your dinner table. The organic form of the clay work blends with its function as a carrier of food allowing the diners to truly experience nature.”

“…The art of creating unique vessels out of clay holds a special place in their hearts as it reminds them of God as their Creator. Through sculpting pottery, they are able to share their life journey and make a difference in the local community by donating 20% of their profits to the local charity Mercy Centre, an organisation which aims to assist the homeless in Singapore…”

Straits Times | March 2016 Fired Up by Pottery

“…Ms Lee Huiwen, 34, co-founder of one-year-old Studio Asobi, says clay is a very “forgiving” medium, as things do not “have to be perfect to look good”. She notes that a creation with a crooked handle or asymmetric proportions can look even more personalised. Ms Lim and Ms Lee are examples of young potters who are making a living out of ceramic art. Ms Lee left a career in business development to pursue what was a hobby, before setting up her studio. Her husband, Mr Kenneth Lau, 33, has always loved pottery. He quit his job as an architect this month to join her full time…”

The Interior Directory | March 2016 I feel the clouds singing and dancing

“…As a departure from the conventional presentation of fragile ceramics, with over four thousand handmade pieces of un-glazed white stoneware delicately positioned on flexible rattan sticks, Studio Asobi designed a cloud-scape that visitors could wander into and engage with, running their hands playfully over the ceramic pieces and listening to their tinkling sounds as they bounced gently against one another…”

“…One such installation is I Feel The Clouds Singing by Studio Asobi, a local ceramic studio. Ceramic artists Lee Huiwen and Kenneth Lau are using rattan and clay to create an interactive cloud-scape installation. Visitors are encouraged to run their fingers over the clay pieces.

“We hope to draw our visitors away from the hustle and bustle of life and invite them to imagine what it might be like to walk among clouds, to be able to touch them and feel them and hear their whispers,” says Ms Lee, a first-time Singaplural participant. “Hopefully, this installation will encourage our visitors to pay more attention to the beauty and wonder of nature that is all around us, even in this urbanised environment.”

The Conceptual Store: Jul 1 2015 Beyond Making Good Art (Soulful Ceramics) 

…Where do you draw your design inspiration from?

Did you know that there is a biblical analogy of God being the Potter while we humans are the clay? :) Our faith inspires us to look at our world with a different set of lenses and to be more keenly aware and sensitive to the natural beauty that is found around us, as well as the goodness and ideals that God had intended humans to experience. From the trees, to the birds, to flowers to mountains, everything beautiful is a source of inspiration!
