My name is Lynn, Chou Kei Rin is not my real name. It is the Japanese name found for me by a Japanese student of ours.
I'm a third generation family trained potter in Singapore and I work in my family's pottery studio. Although I have been exposed to clay/pottery since I was a child, I've only officially started going into this line in end 2010. A visit to Japan the same year opened a new perspective on pottery for me.
In Oct 2011, I held my first exhibition (Ceramix 2011 - Simply Clay) together with 15 other hobby potters.

I had one bisqued teapot which I left unglazed for months because I don’t know what color to glaze. I made a wrong choice by using buff stoneware clay. I had a nice tiny leaf on the teapot cover, and I had a hard time deciding what green to use. In the end I choose our crackle green glaze. I’m actually trying my luck because usually that green turns out like crap on buff clay. But if I’m lucky enough, it’ be a nice green with a yellowish rim.
Too bad, I’m not lucky enough. It came out of the kiln today and it looked horrendous. But well, lesson learnt. I’m replacing it now, this time with white stoneware clay. I have choice of color in mind too. Fingers crossed!
My last post was posted 3 months ago, I’ve been busy with work, to the point where I’d forgotten that I do have a tumblr. I’d probably start posting more from now on, since it’s school holiday and stuff.
That aside, I’ve done alot, including my very first sculpture! It’s for the school’s event, and it’s of the school’s mascot. I’ll post a picture of it next time.
I have relatives that are so blunt and rude it’s hard to even pretend that I didn’t hear it. I feel like a bottle that is almost filled to the brim, probably one day I might just explode in front of all of them and things would just get awfully ugly.
Seriously, what’s so fun about putting others down? It’s disrespectful. Even if they are much older than me, as long as they don’t recognize the basic form of respect, I don’t think they deserve respect from me.
