Think of Singaporean contemporary potters and high chances are you would have thought of Omelet Trees Studio and their clean distinctive line of tableware. Our very first encounter with them was way back in 2016 at an art market under the West Coast viaduct (talk about unconventional spaces) where we just ogled at all their work. There weren't many local potters back then, so it was very refreshing to see new faces!
Whenever we are hit by a bout of wanderlust (but can't jet off just yet), we do the next best thing - scroll through ceramicist Matilda Chamber's Instagram feed!
Her aesthetically-pleasing feed of handmade tableware, mostly taken on her raw concrete studio floor has a tendency to automatically teleport us to the lush natural beauty of Australia. Recently, we've managed to catch hold of her to get to know her better!
Psst, we are about to show you Melbourne's worst kept secret.. the Rose Street Artists' Market! Have we already mentioned that it's our favourite market in Melbourne?
This is our second time here - the first being in the summer of 2015 when we first bumped into Amelia Kingston! We recalled very distinctly that there was a major heatwave then and it was so sweltering hot (yes, hotter than Singapore!).
