This research project investigates childhood memory, the notion of play as expressed in self-made toys and their relationship to sculptural practice.

The studio research component has been engaged in modelling and constructing object-based ceramic work that form a group of hand-built artworks incorporating various materials in the process. This process derives from personal engagement with select childhood memories, as a basis of investigation alongside ceramic history and tradition.

The concepts underpinning studio production, use flora and Malay culture − as a starting point for a series of sculptures that reference the organic in a controlled and animated condition as well as pursuing technical advances.
