Before I continue with this, I’d just like to say that I haven’t been posting because I’ve been sorting out a few things that have been going on. Things are still a bit sketchy at the moment, but hopefully, I’ll be able to explain it to all of you once I’ve gotten stuff sorted out.
Now onwards to the exhibition!
From Sarah’s post, you would know the Adventure Crew went to make figurines and stuff for the Dragon Kiln in December. As we fast forward to March 2013, we get the news of our works being on display in the National Museum of Singapore. So here’s how it went.
The piece on the left brick in the above picture got stuck in the middle of firing, so instead of pulling the two apart, the organisers just kept it there for display. The piece on the left, however, is more intriguing. If you look at it closely, the brick got distorted, twisting along the contours of the vase. One of the guys explained that this happened because the iron content in that brick was higher, making it more malleable during the firing process.
Speaking as someone who used to dabble around with Polymer Clay, this is something significantly different – the anticipation of waiting as your work takes another form through a long, drawn-out process. I’m rather happy with my piece, and since they will be firing the kiln again next year, maybe I’ll try to make a phoenix this time.
Since I got BMO, I’ve been taking him around so he got first pick of photos when Max and I went to the Museum a week earlier. They did let us hold our pieces so we managed to get this picture.
See you all next adventure!
