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

We woke up really early this morning to catch the sunrise. But as we rode along the river, the clouds started to close in and even though we rode on, it wasn’t with much hope that we would see anything beautiful. Indeed, when we reached the bridge at Lorong Halus, the sky was already turning bright and still the sun remained shrouded behind the looming clouds. Slightly disappointed, we turned back and comforted ourselves with the prospect of a hearty breakfast. A few minutes later, we turned our heads to catch a last glimpse behind, and to our joy we saw the sun emerging splendidly from the mountain of clouds. What a sight. Yes, no matter what our plans are for today, tomorrow, next year – life happens. Sometimes we get what we desire, sometimes we don’t. But today we are reminded that we can always face this life with hope, because our hope is built on nothing less than Jesus’ blood and righteousness. When we think we have missed the sunrise, let’s remember to look around us and ask ourselves, “Did I miss something?” #sunrise #hope #joy

Practice

This evolved out of a tall cylinder I was throwing for practice. The shape may look common as factories can churn out thousands easily using a pre-cast mold, but making it by hand takes hours of practice to achieve as its not easy to control the soft thin clay that often listens more to gravity that the potter’s coaxing. Having fingers that are gradually becoming better listeners to clay is filling me with joy! Happy Friday, folks!
