Pottery & Ceramic Workshop

Back in 2006 May, while I was shopping in Ikano, I saw a great display of potteries and ceramic from Clay Expression.
In search of new medium for art exploration, I signed up with them for a 10 lessons session to see how far I can go. It was a great experience and opportunity to learn under two young talented potters Cindy Koh and her assistant Jay, through their simplify techniques.
Just after 2 hand building sessions, I brought home my hand building projects to continue at home. Shortly, I moved on to wheel throwing.
To me, hand building is much easier whereas the wheel throwing method certainly test one’s eyes, hands and body co-ordination skill Not easy at all.
To name a few of my finished items, there are mug, bowl, vase, cute animals and some displays.
I love all the dinosaurs I made. Especially the black one, just so excess with its details.
Well, I had made 8 of them and had given away 4 to friends and student.
I missed those which no longer with me, hope that they find the right home to stay in.
I guess I should revisit them and start doing something new. Just can’t resist the feeling of moulding, throwing the clay and to the colouring stage. Too bad, I was not able to see the last stage, where they sent the items for firing at their Subang Factory.
Got to save up for the lessons, not cheap oohh.
