Continuance refers to the state of remaining in existence or operation. The exhibition Continuance explores this concept through the processes and history of making pottery, bringing together both old and new works. Pottery as a medium embodies this idea through both its process and product. Dating back to the Neolithic period, pottery has stood the test of time with works from thousands of years ago still in existence today. Skills have been passed down from potter to potter across generations. The colors, surfaces, forms, and shapes of ceramics have continued to evolve over time, with the past merging with the present to create the present. Inspired by Chinese ceramics with its rich glazes and surfaces, the series of works in this exhibition blend elements of the past, such as 17th-century Guan glazes with contemporary forms.

Continuance is on display at MARS Gallery from April 27th to May 20th. MARS Gallery is open Tuesday to Saturday from 10am to 4pm.


Angelo Ooi

Angelo Ooi is a self-taught potter who has been working with clay for 4 years now. His practice mainly consists of wheel thrown functional work, but also hand built and sculptural work. Inspired by his Australian and Malaysian-Chinese background, his forms are elegantly refined. Angelo’s work reflects the humble nature of ceramics, showcasing the care and attention required throughout each step of the process, both of which contribute to his unique and individual style. His interest about the technical aspects of ceramics informs his practice, in particular his passion for glazes.
