ODE TO SAN FRANCISCO Through the misty mountains Where life goes on unnoticed I’m floating just under the surface And I can hardly breathe On the edge of the horizon A ship is carried away By waves of changing seasons For it no longer cares to stay But you’re still beside me When the daylight is fading you hold me close And you won’t be leaving Though where this will take us I don’t know Behind the glass before us Our shadow is standing amazed For a light of a thousand colours Is shifting across her face But you’re still beside me When the daylight is fading you hold me close And you won’t be leaving Though where this will take us I don’t know I don’t know And now our journey’s over And the wind will take us home While the seeds that were cast in the fire Reach down to the waters below #studioasobi #sanfrancisco #reflections

ODE TO SAN FRANCISCO

Through the misty mountains
Where life goes on unnoticed
I'm floating just under the surface 
And I can hardly breathe

On the edge of the horizon
A ship is carried away
By waves of changing seasons
For it no longer cares to stay

But you're still beside me
When the daylight is fading you hold me close
And you won't be leaving
Though where this will take us I don't know

Behind the glass before us
Our shadow is standing amazed
For a light of a thousand colours
Is shifting across her face

But you're still beside me
When the daylight is fading you hold me close
And you won't be leaving
Though where this will take us I don't know
I don't know

And now our journey's over
And the wind will take us home
While the seeds that were cast in the fire
Reach down to the waters below

This corporate workshop was particularly meaningful for us as the participants were our ex-bosses and ex-colleagues from our previous company! Kenneth and I were in the same department (during different years), and these are the people whom we shared many years of hard work, late nights, coffee and good meals together. It is a very nice feeling to see everyone again – not just as colleagues but friends! Thank you for all those years of memories and for your continued support! :) #friendship #studioasobi

Two years ago during my sabbatical, a question came to mind – how many sunsets can one witness and admire in a lifetime? At that moment I couldn’t help but mourn for the numerous sunsets and sunrises I had missed. And for the rest of my studio stay in Japan, I did not miss a single sunset. No matter what I was doing, I put it down, got on my bicycle and headed to the river. And I was glad I did. This sake set which reminds me of the glorious sunsets, is a gift I made for a dear friend who lives her life in a manner that seizes the day!:) #handmade #陶器 #さけ #sake set #pottery #ceramics #tableware #studioasobi #madeinsg #sabbatical #sunset #musings #carpediem

A few weeks ago we broke the glass lid of our crock pot. The shock of seeing the glass fall and shatter all over the kitchen floor was followed by the palpable guilt of “I messed up big time…”. But then we remembered that we are potters, and potters make pots. So the glass lid is no more, and in its place is now a beautiful clay lid, one of its kind in this world. But more than a clay lid, it is a reminder that God has taken our old selves – what we had thought was beautiful enough – and broken it apart. And in our brokenness He has given us a new body that is beyond anything we could have dreamed of, so that we can truly rejoice in Him. #studioasobi #broken #rebirth #rejoice #ceramics #madeinsingapore #lid #plate
