It wasn’t supposed to turn out this way. Why can’t it be smooth like others? Why can’t it… Often, we have expectations like these thoughts for our lives. And we get frustrated. But what if the bumps and rough edges and “imperfections” have a purpose? What if we can see beyond our expectations to see their beauty? What if they are there to mould and refine us and bring us into a bigger narrative of our lives that we would not have written ourselves? Being a potter has taught me much. Of surrender. Of being comfortable that control is not something that is meant for us to steer all by ourselves. That there is always redemption and grace for the taking. #musings #life #refine #pottery #ceramics #crawl #glaze #singapore #studioasobi

Beautiful rainy afternoon with our workshop participants! We are always amazed at the creativity, patience and joy of our participants, most of whom have never touched clay in their lives. There must be something inside all of us that compels us to create with our hands. #pottery #clay #ceramics #workshop #sgworkshops #thingstodo #making #craft #art #meditative #studioasobi #singapore
