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 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

“Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.” ‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭13:4-7‬ ‭ #love #word of #God #handmade #ceramics #pottery #madeinsg #singapore #valentines #七夕 #studioasobi

Eating grapes always reminds me of my mother, who would painstakingly peel off the grape skins for us when we were little kids, so we didn’t have to taste the skin. Eating ice also reminds me of my mother, who keeps nagging at me that my teeth will all drop out from chewing the ice cubes from the freezer. Now that I have my own house, I get to chew on frozen grapes without any nagging! But I really do miss the luxury of eating only the sweet translucent flesh of the grapes. Mothers are special indeed. #singapore #homemade #ceramics #mother #love #frozen #grapes

Trimming is one of my favourite activities when working with clay. I can spend hours trimming, watching the rough, bulky forms slowly becoming smoother, more delicate. Do I give God the same pleasure when He moulds and trims me? Is my heart soft enough to be shaped into something beautiful, without resisting or breaking apart under the pressure? #handmade #pottery #ceramics #trimming #studioasobi #reflections #God #potter

Isn’t it lovely to be able to eat and drink out of your own creations? :) Ceramics are also made to last a very long time; an antidote to the crazy throwaway culture we live in today!
