Alvin YongAlvin Yong

The fluidity of clay in manifesting ideas into forms fascinates Alvin. His works are mainly artistic experimentation in clean line, unconventional contours and creative glaze effects. His preferred design style in pottery is that of the "loose" concept. Alvin loves to experiment with creation of new fusion art forms and he pioneered the Stone Mosaic in 2013.

Alvin is the co-founder of Clay-Street.com.

Chew Seow PhuangChew Seow Phuang

I'm a ceramic artist whose primary medium is clay. I feel that it is the responsibility of an artist to be making a statement through their art whether it is about the use fo form, texture or colour. I attempt to show that things are not necessarily as they seem on the surface or as we expect them to be.

Clay is the most fascinating and seductive medium for expression. Expression can give the work a feeling of energy, commitment and relevance. I convey emotion by the forms and surfaces that have been handled.

Seow Phuang is the co-founder of Clay-Street.com.

Eddie GohEddie Goh

Eddie Goh embarked on his journey with ceramics in the year 2000. He developed his unusual style through years of sketching and working with fabric, paper, wood and metal.

His ceramic work is characterized by an almost fragile sensibility to the forms of nature, an emphatically anti-geometric aesthetic, attention to details as well as the imaginatively use of unusual combination of material. It is an eloquent expression of his affection for ceramic and arts.

Graham HayGraham Hay

I have borrowed imagery from architecture and nature in my attempts to suggest the cycles, rigidities and dynamic nature of creativity and movement in our society, and within myself.

My art practise is based upon two simple things - Paper and clay. I create and fire paperclay sculptures, and carve compressed paper sculptures.

Since 1993 I have exhibited and given workshops on paperclay. The growing interest in my work has enabled me to learn how the arts and crafts are organised in society. The ceramic paperclay work is an attempt to illustrate this organisation of the arts and crafts.

Greg CroweGreg Crowe

My current salt-glazed work concentrates on clay bodies and slips developed from locally dug materials. I am fascinated by the colour responses in areas protected or shielded from full exposure to the salt vapours.

Highly respected for his wheel-throwing skill and woofiring effects, Greg's vessels explore the textural boundaries of the clay body. Stretched and torn, roughly marked surfaces are enhanced by their salt-glazed veners, in varying degrees of transluceny, and in a range of diverse colour. Greg is the lecturer for ceramics at the West Coast College of TAFE, Carine Campus in Western Australia.

Mona MalhotraMona Malhotra

Hailing from India, the impact of cultural diversity has always acted as a seedling to my thoughts and i try to find resamblances in different cultures. Thus, amalgamating my creations with my travel experiences. Beginning my journey with clay in 2009 i have explored and incorporàted those beliefs in my work. I take pleasure in depicting the intricacies and the pleasant outcomes of the complexity in everyday's life through the crudity of clay transforming into an exquisite masterpiece.The connection from EARTH to CLAY to MANKIND amuses me to bring out my forms and connect to them. I get inspired by the balance in nature choreographed by mother earth in the various forms of existence and their connection to each other.
