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

THERE’S SOMETHING There’s something I want To tell you what’s on my mind You already know Sometimes it’s hard to be a brother to two sisters. I don’t know how to engage in girl talk, and I’m not interested in clothes or bags or shoes or pets. But I thank God for giving me hands that can make things, so I can be useful once in a while! #ceramics #madeinsg #piglet #puglet #handmade #opposites

THERE'S SOMETHING
There's something I want
To tell you what's on my mind
You already know

Sometimes it's hard to be a brother to two sisters. I don't know how to engage in girl talk, and I'm not interested in clothes or bags or shoes or pets. But I thank God for giving me hands that can make things, so I can be useful once in a while!

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

HERE WITH YOU Though these tattered clothes Can’t stop the rain coming in They will keep you warm This is our very first double walled vessel, and my birthday gift for my beloved wife. Thank you for the joy you brought to my life from the very first moment I met you, and every day after that. There will be ups and downs in this journey together, but I’m not afraid at all because of what we believe in, and because I will be there always to keep you warm in my arms. #studioasobi #madeinsg #doublewall #vessel #warmth #love #birthday #ceramics #pottery

HERE WITH YOU
Though these tattered clothes
Can't stop the rain coming in
They will keep you warm

This is our very first double walled vessel, and my birthday gift for my beloved wife. Thank you for the joy you brought to my life from the very first moment I met you, and every day after that. There will be ups and downs in this journey together, but I'm not afraid at all because of what we believe in, and because I will be there always to keep you warm in my arms.

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

It can be hard to remain optimistic in the waves of violence, hatred, exploitation and oppression that we glean from the global news at an increasing intensity. There is so much injustice and unfairness that makes one weep. Fear squeezes the life out of people and scars are cut repeatedly till the body becomes numb. What then can we do? How then shall we respond? There are no clear and easy answers. I am praying for mercy and compassion to turn the tides around, where faith, hope and justice can reign again. I am praying for seeds of peace and love to germinate and sprout like it is springtime. May selfishness and pettiness be plucked up like useless weeds and cast away. #reflections #prayer #faith #hope #love #mercy #justice #compasion #freedom

Leaving the nest… Last year, two little birds visited our balcony and built a beautiful nest among our vines. After a few weeks of silence, we heard some new chirping sounds in the nest and before long, five birds flew out to start their new lives. It was such a joyful moment to watch them leave the nest! Mummy bird and daddy bird still visit once in awhile, bringing with them lovely memories and dreams of the future. #studioasobi #birds #nest #chalkboard #painting #flying
