Patterns of Our Time - Otters Rice Grain Porcelain Plate (15cm)
Otters Rice Grain Porcelain Plate
Inspired by Jingdezhen's traditional rice grain porcelain, but with a local twist, the otter rice grain porcelain is an embodiment of the Singaporean spirit. A pair of smooth-coated otters — playful critters that have captured the hearts of many Singaporeans — has been imprinted at the well of the blue-and-white porcelain. The illustration drew reference from our Prime MinisterLee Hsien Loong'ssocial media post of a pair of wild otters frolicking in the waters in Singapore Botanic Gardens. A family unit, the twin otters in the centre of the otter-rice grain porcelain stand for togetherness and is also an ode to the prodigious growth that Singapore has experienced as a nation.

Quality Of Product:
Porcelain is a medium where colour variation is a natural occurring feature of reactive, speckled, matte and cobalt-blue glazed finishing. Irregularities in glaze and texture should be celebrated as a mark of the artist's hand. Therefore, each piece is unique and has a handcrafted element to it.
