Potty over ceramics

November sees surge of pottery exhibitions and shows

A CERAMICS craze seems to be sweeping over Singapore with four pottery exhibitions in the month of November alone, along with countless smaller studio shows around the city. All in, there are over 200 potters selling their wares, ranging from vases to sculptures. Chalk it up to the overwhelming success of last year's inaugural Singapore Clay Festival, which saw many more potters coming out to showcase their talents and passions. In tomorrow's BT Lifestyle, go clay hunting as we find out why, even in this hands-off digital age, pottery offers a slow, messy, sensuous and therapeutic experience that many find irresistible.

In Design, we look at the restoration of two icons of electric power in Singapore and the UK - namely, the St James Power Station and Battersea Power Station in London. The former is one of the winners in this year's URA Architectural Heritage Awards, while the latter is being given a new lease of life.

And in Dining, travel to Ipoh via Scotts Road with Small Tables, which serves up familiar Ipoh hor fun in a sidewalk cafe on Scotts Road. Read more in tomorrow's edition of BT.
