“Tell Archippus: “See to it that you complete the ministry you have received in the Lord.” – Colossians 4:17 Do you ever wonder why you are put here on earth for a period of time? Do you ever wish you can discover your calling? We sure went through these questions ourselves! :D We met Ps Henson when he came to our church to preach about understanding our kingdom assignments, and that is when we learnt about his ministry – Archippus Awakening. Here is a set of cups that he commissioned as a gift for his editors/translators who were helping him with the Chinese edition of his book:) We love making these meaningful custom gifts as it is art which one can interact with on a daily basis! Have a good week ahead! #archippusawakening #ministry #handmade #pottery #ceramics #art #studioasobi #madeinsg

It is by grace we passed the dark night to enter into a new day of life. What a wonderful gift! St Paul’s words to the Corinthians “having nothing, and yet possessing everything” struck me this morning as I looked out to these beautiful trees. How often in the world we actually see the opposite happening. As an artist, that is what I appreciate about nature. Its beauty transcends the mind and meets with the soul. And how blessed to be nourished this morning in this manner:) Happy Saturday to you too! #grace #inspiration #art #trees #nature

The beauty of experimentation lies in the fact that there are risks of failure, but at the same time, also possibilities for unexpected discoveries. We discovered this beautiful pattern, which looks like the iris of the eye of a majestic animal, and we also found a cup stuck onto our kiln shelf as the glaze was too flowy. Such is life! Time and chance happens to all man, or kiln shelves for that matter :p . . #experimentation #discovery #handmade #pottery #clay #ceramic #glazes #colours #harefur #madeinsg #studioasobi #singapore #art

After working with clay for the past couple of years, I still find it so fascinating that something like the dust of earth can be transformed through fire into an object of beauty and function. The act of carving is so therapeutic and sacred at the same time as you cut away what doesn’t feel right to be there. There is simply a special joy and impulse to work with one’s hands to create, which is inside each human being! :) . . . #happywork #create #craft #art #pottery #clay #ceramics #potter #craftsman #madeinsg #singapore #studioasobi

Such a blessing to have been given this chance to do a pottery workshop for the 20 beautiful kids from Hirono, Fukushima 2 weeks ago. As a Singaporean, I cannot imagine what it must be like to live in the aftermath of a disaster like what these kids have gone through, but through this short experience I have come to realize how resilient the human spirit can be, and how small my problems are compared to what is happening around the world. So thankful for the efforts of Today Is The Day foundation and the organizing team from LaSalle’s Art Management program for this inspiring opportunity, and for the kids from Hirono who have taught us so much in just 3 hours. #studioasobi #ceramics #workshop #pottery #fukushima #hirono #art #therapy

This morning during my private reflection time, a verse came to mind – “So teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom” from Psalm 90:12. There is equality in that we all have 24 hours a day. No more no less. If we are fortunate to be living in a free nation, without oppression or slavery or violent conflicts, it is entirely up to us to make responsible choices in how we use our time. As artists, we spend a lot of time conceptualizing and musing over what we want to create. It is often not easy, yet it is essential. But beyond making good art, being there for those who care about is even more important. Decisions, decisions! It is our prayer that we can all grow in wisdom in what we do:) After all, as Annie Dillard puts it beautifully, “how we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives.” Have a good day ahead! #reflections #life #psalms #time #anniedillard #art

These white little vases are kept unglazed because life is beautiful in its raw simplicity and fragility. Life is also transitory, so at the end of the day, what is most purposeful to you? Picture is a repost from @imehly, our product stylist friend who recently moved to Singapore from Perth:) #life #purpose #meaning #whatdrivesyou #pottery #ceramics #clay #madeinsg #design #art #handmade #craft #studioasobi
