These white little vases are kept unglazed because life is beautiful in its raw simplicity and fragility. Life is also transitory, so at the end of the day, what is most purposeful to you? Picture is a repost from @imehly, our product stylist friend who recently moved to Singapore from Perth:) #life #purpose #meaning #whatdrivesyou #pottery #ceramics #clay #madeinsg #design #art #handmade #craft #studioasobi

This morning, it felt as if we were shrouded by a veil of sorrow and worry. But as this little Calla Lily bowl took shape, a verse came to mind. Luke 12:25-27 “And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? If then you are not able to do as small a thing as that, why are you anxious about the rest? Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin,yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.” God’s grace moves in unexpected ways. #studioasobi #singapore #ceramics #pottery #godisgood #love #grace #lilies

This morning, it felt as if we were shrouded by a veil of sorrow and worry. But as this little Calla Lily bowl took shape, a verse came to mind.

Luke 12:25-27
"And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? If then you are not able to do as small a thing as that, why are you anxious about the rest? Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin,yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these." 

God's grace moves in unexpected ways.

Often times, our workshop participants come without any art or pottery experience and they would wonder aloud about whether they would make a mess of their first attempt. We always say to them that clay is a perfect medium for experimentation and the works would turn out just fine:) We know that because from our experience, more often than not, they would turn out looking very pretty like these ones! #pottery #workshop #clay #ceramics #sgworkshops #livingclay #studioasobi #singapore #madeinsg #handmade #craft #art #experimentation

As much as we desire to see beautiful things, the state of the world isn’t pretty. There is evil that threatens to destroy and disrupt; there is greed that plasters over the conscience which makes exploitation and deceit okay. There are people who are struggling to keep themselves and their loved ones alive to see another day, and there are those who are dying a slow death because of the irresponsible acts committed by others in stripping their land and polluting their water streams. So, what can be done? I can’t make a dent in solving these mammoth issues, but I don’t wish to turn a blind eye and look the other way either. So we asked ourselves – can we live differently? Instead of cultivating an insatiable appetite of needs and wants, we can delight in the simple lifestyle. Instead of fearing we won’t have enough, we can share the little that we have with others who need it more than we do. Instead of participating in hate and divisions, we can work to build up empathy and compassion. Instead of creating more things that feed into the throwaway culture, we make things that last beyond a lifetime. We are working towards reducing unnecessary consumption to reduce waste, and also to reduce the amount of chemicals that get into our water streams by making our own household & personal cleaning agents. As we started paying more attention, we are discovering more and more ways to be a better steward of our earth’s resources. If you have stories or tips about what you are doing, do share them! We would love to hear from you :) The more we can all chip in to build a better culture, the better it would be! #musings #environment #nature #sustainability #conservation #stewardship #culture #maker #singapore #pottery #ceramics
