While preparing for our second exclusive collection, this time with local potter Lerae Lim, she dropped the bomb that she was in the midst of opening up her own pottery studio (with a partner). And of course, us being us, we knew we had to make a visit down as soon as it opened. And that, we did. When the studio was almost ready, we caught up with her at her new studio to get to know more about her and to take a sneak peek!
We first discovered En Ceramics on Instagram when we were searching for Singapore-based potters to join us for our Two-Day Clay event in June this year. What drew us to her tableware were her seemingly simple yet elegant forms, coupled with her lovely colour palettes that complemented her designs very well. We contacted her to produce an exclusive collection and the rest is... history.
For this year's Open Studio, we decided to change it up a notch and hold a little pop-up shop in a mall on Orchard Road. With a prime location and a long-enough duration (2 months), we knew we had the opportunity to work with more local potters to showcase their talent! Here's the full list of local potters that we managed to work with this time round.
We are pretty sure you know about our collaboration with H&M for their #HMSG10andmore campaign by now because we've been going on and on about it on our socials! To celebrate their 10th year anniversary in Singapore, H&M chose ten local artists / designers to collaborate with and we are so proud to be one of the chosen ones (although technically we don't consider ourselves as artists or designers).
