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.

Was having my Chinese painting lesson yesterday and had a chat with one of my classmates. She went to get some Chinese painting materials at the shop we frequent a few days ago. To her dismay, she found out that the same Chinese painting paper I bought for SGD$300 at the beginning of the year now costs SGD$1000. Every piece of paper I’m drawing on costs $10 now. What f**k.
Recently, I’ve been having a drawing malfunction for my chinese painting homework. Nothing seems to come out decent, and it’s stressful for me because I’ve always had high expectation for myself. It gets even more stressful when teacher wants me to draw the same as the advanced class students now, even though I’ve only barely started learning for half a year.
When I feel crappy after a few failed drawings, I just feel like stopping immediately and rush down to the studio to do some pottery. It really does calm me down. (And wake me up at the same time whenever I’m feeling sleepy during a slow day.)
(Feeling sleepy now… zzzzz…)
