Being on lockdown for the past 2.5 months and having to stare at the same few spaces in my house, I have come to realise that... my plants are severely neglected, disorganised and terribly displayed.
I was always envious of picturesque Instagram feeds that somehow manages to display green foliages so aesthetically in usual living spaces such as the bedroom or living room. So, I finally got down to searching on ways I can style my house with plants and made a list!
When we were looking for Singapore-based makers for our open studio 2019, we turned to our favourite discovery app, Instagram, to cast a wider net for possible collaborations. The wonderful algorithm led us to New Zealander Carragh Amos who had just shifted to Singapore a couple of months prior! Her feed of wood-fired wares and kurinuki cups caught our attention as it was quite uncommon among the other local ceramicists.
Yes yes we understand. It's almost always an impossible task to find the perfect present for the best person in the whole wide world - our moms! Hopefully this gift guide can help to inspire you in your search for that elusive perfect present.

We thought it will be timely to put out this post displaying some good-looking tableware that has a touch of gold to release some 'feel good' endorphins while you battle it out with your family members during this 'Circuit-Breaker' period. This time, we will do one better by also providing some links if you feel like trying out a new recipe instead of quarrelling over that remote control.
When we were in Bali to catch some much needed sun and sea, we managed to sneak in a visit to Indonesian ceramic artist Sekar Puti's quaint studio and caught up with her over some delicious Balinese coffee and instagram-worthy views.
