LANDSCAPE IN PINK Oh how the parched land Waits for the kiss of the rain While the clouds drift low I like crackle glazes. There’s so much beauty in the intricate patterns they create, and yet there is always a sense of quiet sadness, of brokenness that’s silently held in. And so the cracked bed of a dried-up lake is mesmerising in its beauty, even as it desperately yearns to be filled again. #studioasobi #handmade #ceramic #plate #crackle #dried #pink #filled #spirit

LANDSCAPE IN PINK

Oh how the parched land
Waits for the kiss of the rain
While the clouds drift low

I like crackle glazes. There's so much beauty in the intricate patterns they create, and yet there is always a sense of quiet sadness, of brokenness that's silently held in. And so the cracked bed of a dried-up lake is mesmerising in its beauty, even as it desperately yearns to be filled again.

WHITE AS SNOW It’s warmer inside But there is always time to Step out in the snow For the man who taught me to be strong, who taught me all the skills that I know, and then watched in horror as I skied down a snowy road without permission or supervision, into oncoming traffic…among other equally life threatening escapades. Now that it appears I’m all grown up, it’s time for you to step out into the snow too, breathe in the fresh winter air, and let those legs keep taking you and mummy to places you’ve never been before! #studioasobi #handmade #madeinsg #pottery #gratitude #daddy #snowy #letsgo

WHITE AS SNOW
It's warmer inside
But there is always time to 
Step out in the snow

For the man who taught me to be strong, who taught me all the skills that I know, and then watched in horror as I skied down a snowy road without permission or supervision, into oncoming traffic...among other equally life threatening escapades.

Now that it appears I'm all grown up, it's time for you to step out into the snow too, breathe in the fresh winter air, and let those legs keep taking you and mummy to places you've never been before!

Running large workshops can be a little daunting at times, but being among fellow brothers and sisters in Christ definitely takes away the stress! Really blessed to be able to share our craft, our joy and our meditations with the Lay Ministry Staff from the Methodist Church’s Chinese Annual Conference. And to see the beautiful vessels emerging from the hands of these lovely artists. #studioasobi #pottery #handmade #workshop #methodist #church #singapore #jarsofclay

ON DIFFERENT SOIL Though lands be many Still wherever He sows me In faith I shall grow These two vessels commissioned by a group of overseas Singaporeans are made using the nerikomi technique of fusing different clays together, symbolizing the different environments (or soils) we have grown up in across the various stages of our lives. Each place has its unique nature, and each has played an indelible part in shaping us into who we are today. But perhaps there is also something inside us, something deeper and greater than the sum of our backgrounds and experiences, that continues to mould us and refine us into the beautiful vessels that we will eventually become. So that wherever we go, there we will thrive. And wherever we are planted, there we will flourish. #studioasobi #ceramics #handmade #madeinsg #nerikomi #foreignsoil #bloomwhereyouareplanted

“Tell Archippus: “See to it that you complete the ministry you have received in the Lord.” – Colossians 4:17 Do you ever wonder why you are put here on earth for a period of time? Do you ever wish you can discover your calling? We sure went through these questions ourselves! :D We met Ps Henson when he came to our church to preach about understanding our kingdom assignments, and that is when we learnt about his ministry – Archippus Awakening. Here is a set of cups that he commissioned as a gift for his editors/translators who were helping him with the Chinese edition of his book:) We love making these meaningful custom gifts as it is art which one can interact with on a daily basis! Have a good week ahead! #archippusawakening #ministry #handmade #pottery #ceramics #art #studioasobi #madeinsg

The beauty of experimentation lies in the fact that there are risks of failure, but at the same time, also possibilities for unexpected discoveries. We discovered this beautiful pattern, which looks like the iris of the eye of a majestic animal, and we also found a cup stuck onto our kiln shelf as the glaze was too flowy. Such is life! Time and chance happens to all man, or kiln shelves for that matter :p . . #experimentation #discovery #handmade #pottery #clay #ceramic #glazes #colours #harefur #madeinsg #studioasobi #singapore #art

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
