Potter's Statement

My work centres on the innovation of form and glaze effects. I'm deeply fascinated by the fluidity of clay and its texture, as well as the infinite possibility of colours and surface effects of experimenting with glazes and various firing techniques.

I'm a pottery enthusiast based in Singapore. Through the years of coiling, throwing and glazing, I've developed a passionate fascination over this art form. The fluidity in ceramic form creation and the magical effects of firing never cease to delight my senses. I also greatly enjoy the many hours of therapeutic movement and concentration required at creating something beautiful out of a mere lump of clay. My works are mainly artistic experimentations in clean line, unconventional contours and creative glaze effects.
