Pigment recollects the memory of a usual pile of clay in my lecturer’s studio and of a natural dye workshop in Chiangmai this year. The collection uses pigment from clay found in Singapore sites. The clay is mixed with porcelain, giving it the plasticity to take form. Remarkably, the Singapore clay gifted the form with beautiful natural colour pigment never seen before. Pieces of ceramics walls were cut and replaced with a natural-dye fabric to resemble the houses we live in that are built on clay.
Local clay collected from Jurong, Yishun, Newton & Kota Tinggi.
