Last weekend, we paid a visit to Weekend Worker’s mini ceramics exhibition at the soon-to-be-gone pop-up store Temporium in Little India.
We had our little foray into ceramics last year and while we thoroughly enjoyed it, there doesn’t quite seem to be enough time nor will nor talent for us to continue pursuing the hobby (for now, at least!). Nevertheless, what the course gave us was a deeper appreciation for the art. We were really happy to discover Weekend Worker last year at one of the Public Garden markets. We love their wabi-sabi aesthetic and thought their ceramics a nice, contemporary addition to (admittedly, our limited knowledge of) the local ceramics scene.
When we opened Small And Able later in the year, we got in touch with them to see if we can have some of their lovely wares for retail. The result was a series of functional+decorative wares made especially with our little shop in mind! This time for their showcase at Temporium, the ceramics collective together with their four instructors, are exhibiting 10 cups each.
We exercised suitable restraint and only purchased one of Ong Su Loon’s Hello World! Series. Each piece comes wrapped in WW’s hand-dyed furoshiki cloths! Love.
The exhibition is held in the café part of Temporium, and you can enjoy a nice cup of coffee while you admire the works. The café menu only has toast and drinks, but we did love our slice of (expensive) brioche toast with GSH Conserves’ passion fruit jam (GSH stands for Gan Soon Hock, who’s the creator behind this local homemade jam brand. We really dig their passion fruit spread.).
