Yesterday was my last day as a corporate worker. This 3m long money plant had been growing steadily in my cubicle, silently marking time. From a little pot with just a few leaves, it is now a giant in its own right. As I detached it from my cubical walls and laid it out on the floor to survey its growth, it made me wonder, what are the plants that we water and grow in our lives? Are they flowering plants that provide beauty and fragrance? Are they tall trees that bear fruit and give shade? Or are they parasitic vines that wrap around, then strangle their hosts as they climb higher and higher? (Kenneth) #freedom #corporate #life #singapore #ceramics

We are so happy that #spotlight won the Best Picture at the #oscars. Because it is a story that needs to be told, and told again 14 years after the news first broke in 2002. Why? Because we grow numb with old news, where our hearts should have remained tender. Because nothing much seemed to have changed from the #Vatican if we look up current news. Because the abuse survivors are still locked up in shame, guilt and in desperate need for justice. How often do we turn the spotlight on things that don’t really matter? How often do we quickly turn the spotlight away, where light needs to linger, in order to cast out evil who lurks in the darkness? How often do we turn the spotlight on ourselves, to search the innermost depths of our beings, and to purge what we wish to lay hidden? In this season of #lent, may #justice and #mercy meet at the center of each and everyone’s heart, just as it did at the #cross so many years ago. May this lead to a #transformation of this world. May #God’s name not continue to be dragged through the mud, by the terrible deeds of man.

We like to tell our friends that eating from one’s handmade plate makes the food taste so much better. But there are a few dishes that never need any enhancement, and this is one of them. Glutinous rice with dried scallop belachan chili, made by our wonderful parents, fragrant with the love that a child never forgets. #parents #love #glutinousrice #ceramics #singapore #handmade

Each handmade piece, with its slightly different thickness, shape and fired temperature will have a different sound when you hit it. Here is my better half testing out each piece and laying them in accordance to their notes. How would they all sound together? Hmm, exciting!!! Come and play with our installation from 7-13th March at Singaplural! #Singaplural #ifeelthecloudssinging #mixedmedia #art #installation by #studioasobi #handmade #ceramic #pottery #clay #rattan #wood #wonder #clouds #singapore #music #notes

Don’t they kinda look like pocky sticks? Or maybe we are just feeling hungry! :D We are getting ready for Singaplural, which opens 7th Mar! Come and play with our installation :) Having been painting for the past two nights, I really respect the painters who paint all day long. The smell of paint is rather choking even with doors and windows wide open, and thinner to wash off stains stings the hands. Yet, they do this day in and out, just to make a honest living. My heart grows full when I think of Kenneth, who notices my discomfort and tells me it’s ok, he can do the painting. With his love, he inspires me to do more and do better, so I shall get back to painting now! Have a good work day too, folks! #mixedmedia #art #installation for #Singaplural by #studioasobi #clay #rattan #wood #singapore #pocky
