Davy Young: Leaves with Memories (Booth, Workshop): – Davy Young is a ceramic artist who makes fine hand-crafted ceramic leaves pressed from real natural leaves. Each leaf is individually hand-made, by pressing a real leaf onto a thin slab of fine white clay.
After the clay leaf is cut according to the shape and size of the natural leaf, it is air-dried. The dried clay leaf is then fired in a kiln at 1,000 degrees Celsius, then glazed in tones of green or brown, and re-fired at 1,200 degrees to give the finished artwork.
The finished products are suitable for ornamental display or functional uses, such as shallow dishes, plates, soap dishes, containers for jewellery, tea-bag holders, and pendants.
Davy personally makes all his ceramic works or art in small btaches of about 20 pieces at a time. He works from home

Amy Toh: Sew into It (Workshop): Tic-Tac-CHOPE!

Mei’s Creations specialises in one of a kind jewelry pieces. All our products are handmade in our home studio and we use a wide variety of materials; from sterling silver and semi-precious stones to acrylic and Swarovski crystals.

Potato Garden-Om Ee Joo (Booth)
The display is titled “House of Sake”.”A house is seen as a cultural template in Japan and each room and level embodies a specific cultural significance. Similarly, in the display, it seeks to showcase the world of sake brewing in the form of a house. The top most layer demonstrates the viewing of the product through theeyes of the consumer. The middle layer highlights the cultural aspect of sake in Shinto rituals, as well as the artisan production of the sake barrel, commonly used for storage and transportation of sake. The bottom layer would finally showcase the manual labour and practicesemployed by the toji (master brewer) and kurabito (brewers) in a traditional Japanese Brewery.”
