Group Pottery Workshop

What a blessing to be able to share the joy of creation with 82 wonderful teachers and health professionals from Grace Orchard School at a group pottery workshop:) Our first time working with such a large group, but seeing the smiles on everyone’s faces makes all the hard work worth it!

Really inspired too and humbled by what Grace Orchard School is doing to bring education to the special needs children in Singapore. Honored to be a part of their staff development session today!

Pinch pot

Often my mind drifts and thinks about things as I work on clay. Yet at the same time, there is also a dialogue going on with the clay as I pinch or pull, scrap or cut.

Clay is a medium with its own limits, colours and personalities. Sometimes like today, it shows me where it wants to go. And I just follow.

Handmade Pottery

Something is brewing! I always enjoy meeting interesting people and having thought provoking conversations. Especially over tea and desserts served on handmade pottery:)

The Crossroads of Should and Must

This isn’t my story, but I had to choose between “should” and “must” when I decided on a complete career switch into ceramics too. Of course, there are always going to be fears and doubts, and the possibility of making a complete mess and failure.

However, I did not want to take the bigger risk – of not ever trying and having regrets at the end that I played it too safe and missed all the colours and rainbows of life.

Hope this article will be an encouragement and inspiration for you as you answer this question – “What is it that you really want to do?”

Carpe diem and happy mid-week!

Hello. My name is Adam!

Genesis 2:7 – “And The Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being.”

Genesis 2:15 – “Then The Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to tend and keep it.”

As a Chinese, I heard the story of Nu Wa, who made humans out of mud. As a Christian, I came to know the creation account through the bible. Isn’t it interesting how both accounts talk about mankind being formed out of clay?

As I molded my first clay human, I started to think of why humans are shaped the way we do. Also, why did both accounts choose to use clay as a medium?

Genesis 3:19 – “By the sweat of your brow you will eat your food until you return to the ground, since from it you were taken; for dust you are and to dust you will return.”

This is a mystery I will continue to pursue as a potter for a long time to come! In the meantime, let me tend to my garden.. :)
