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!
