It's been some time since we went last went for an arts exhibition, so when we saw an Instagram post by Carragh Amos announcing a ceramics exhibition that she was participating in, we immediately locked the dates down in our calendar! Held over 21st - 24 January 2021, the exhibition was titled 'earth.' to celebrate the diversity of clay.
As usual, we were using our favourite potter-discovery app (aka Instagram) late last year when we stumbled upon local ceramicist Jenisse Lau's account. We got drawn to her miniature mugs series and got in touch with her. Here are nine questions we shot at her to get to know a bit more of her and her craft!

I'm pretty sure this was a phrase we've all been told by our parents whenever we follow them into ceramic or tableware shops when we were kids. Ceramics have long been traditionally thought of as a fragile and delicate medium because... well, they break.
So when we first saw the paper series by Hayden Youlley, we were so pleasantly surprised. By recreating the texture of his products to mimic the appearance and feel of paper, he was somehow pushing the notion of ceramics as a delicate medium ! We got in touch with Hayden to find out more about him and his brand.
