Kagami Studio celebrated its second anniversary with a mini exhibition held at the Studio 83 last Saturday. Karen has invited 5 individuals, including myself, with different backgounds to be invovled in silver clay making and to showcase our works during an art jam event. Three of them are students from their certificate course. The other one was Karen's partner, Hosanna, who is a certified silver clay instructor, then it was Karen and myself. 



As a collaboration, Karen invited me to her studio and taught me basic skills on working with silver clay weeks before the exhibition. This was a brand new experience for me. With the flexibility of clay, I came up with ideas which involve pressing and moulding, utilising the nature of clay. My work was about protruded points on the body.

Each of the exhibitors related her work with the theme in a different way. As an architect, Karen has combined the idea of building architecture and making jewellery. She has also applied the technique of origami into silver clay making. This resulted in a series of miniatures. I especially like the setting with the illustrations on the background.

We kicked off the art jam event by inviting participants to paint on a big canvas prepared by Studio 83. They all enjoyed themselves during the 4 hours event painting their own canvas and left the studio with a masterpiece in hand!
