It was a sweet moment to see the seniors excitedly taking pride in showing their friends which piece of ceramic they designed in this mosaic artwork! For us, that is what art is about – the human connection:) We were also blessed as our contractor is an artist himself! What a pleasure working together! #art #clay #bringspeopletogether #pottery #ceramic #installation #artist #studioasobi #majulah #singapura #singapore #thyehuakwan #human #connection

Trim away

Sometimes I am surprised by how much clay I have to trim away before the vessel can look like how it is in my mind. It makes me think about my own life – how much unnecessary junk am I carrying around that could and should be thrown away?

Happy Thursday, the weekend is coming!

There is a space between the past and the future where all possibilities lie – do you linger and look back, or choose to take off your old shoes and step into the unknown?

Wood Firing in Dragon Kiln

There is something mystical that happens in the belly of the dragon as it swallows wood after wood to feed its hunger. The flames climb high into the night and they lick and whisper into the pots as they exchange their smother for colours. As a potter, you can only surrender the last touches of the creation to nature and be at rest with what emerges from the test of fire.

Yet, all of these cannot happen without the hard work of people who continually feed the dragon to satisfy its appetite, well deep into the night. Special thanks goes to Mr Lim, Kwok Sun and students at Ceramic House, as well as organisers of the recent Awaken the Dragon festival. Thank you for making this possible!
