Good morning! We were greeted with this beautiful sunrise while we were out for an early cycle. The rays were so gentle, yet so bright and they illuminated all the different types of clouds which were hanging out together in the skies! We paused many times to take in the changing beauty and I couldn’t help but notice how many others along the PCN didn’t stop to look and marvel. Why was that the case? Was this too common a sight for them that they have grown numb? Or, did they simply miss this because they were not present at that moment and were too preoccupied in their minds? It is too easy and convenient to miss out on the simple joys in life. We haven’t been out cycling in the morning for some time too. May we all learn to number our days so that we may gain a heart of wisdom! :) #morning #sunrise #nature #singapore #simplejoys

Running large workshops can be a little daunting at times, but being among fellow brothers and sisters in Christ definitely takes away the stress! Really blessed to be able to share our craft, our joy and our meditations with the Lay Ministry Staff from the Methodist Church’s Chinese Annual Conference. And to see the beautiful vessels emerging from the hands of these lovely artists. #studioasobi #pottery #handmade #workshop #methodist #church #singapore #jarsofclay

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

勿忘初衷 | Forget Me Not We live in a distracting world that beckons to pull us in all different directions and desires. Yet, often when we have found our purpose and goal, we just got to stay focused and single-minded in the pursuit. And not forget our initial love and passion :) P.S. Loving the shadows cast by our plants swaying in the wind! #calligraphy #handmade #pottery #ceramics #tableware #madeinsg #designedinsg #life #musings #purpose #studioasobi #singapore #勿忘初衷

Last Sunday, we had the privilege of participating in a meaningful and interesting art therapy programme for a group of 9 to 12-year-olds from Fukushima, whose lives were dramatically altered by the disaster in 2011. It was a joy to see how these children took to clay, exploring its possibilities and freely expressing themselves! We are thankful for the group of volunteers and translators; Goodman Ceramic Studio for the venue and firing support; as well as Jacqueline for taking the photos:) If you are interested to find out more about the programme or to be a befriender, the group is here till 6 Aug and is hosted by Today Is The Day Foundation. Their works from the art therapy sessions would also be displayed for 2 weeks at Scape starting from 7 Aug! 24th July was also our 5th year wedding anniversary, and this was a very special way to celebrate our journey together as a couple! We thank God for blessing our love for each other and enabling us to love others:) #arttherapy #clay #pottery #ceramics #workshop #love #hope #joy #studioasobi #singapore
