Goh Eck Kheng, Director of the Singapore Clay Festival , said: “The inaugural Singapore Clay Festival is an important milestone in studio pottery in Singapore. It gives our big, diverse, and growing community of professional and hobbyist potters the opportunity to interact with each other and to showcase their works to the general public.

We stand with others in the Singapore arts community in not being defeated by Covid-19.”
