WELCOME TO BOON'S POTTERY
Learn the art of pottery from the best potters in Singapore
Boon’s Pottery was founded by Master Potter Chuan Siang Boon in 1998 as he left his corporate job and embarked on the journey to follow his dreams. Over the years, Boon's Pottery has grown from a one-man team to a group of passionate ceramic artists and instructors, featuring both local masterpieces as well as masterpieces from foreign visiting potters. Many of Boon's masterpieces have been sold worldwide and some were chosen as state gifts for foreign officials. The team at Boon's Pottery offers students exposure to different styles and techniques and is a good place to learn the art of pottery.
Boon’s Pottery is a Singaporean art gallery and studio featuring local ceramic artists as well as collections from visiting ceramic artists around the world. Since 1998, we have always stood as a platform for Singaporean ceramic artists to showcase the works and techniques unique to our local flavour. Today, with a pool of talented instructors and armed with a full studio capable of glazing and firing, we conduct classes to bring the general public closer to the appreciation of fine ceramic arts.
Something for Everyone
Basics of Pottery
Handbuilding is an ancient pottery-making technique that involves creating forms without a pottery wheel, using the hands, fingers, and simple tools. The most common handbuilding techniques are pinch pottery, coil building, and slab building. We recommend starting from coil building to build your foundation, as well as to understand the nature of clay better.
Your New Masterpiece
Wheel Throwing makes use of an electric potter wheel to shape the clay placed on the wheel. Watching a skilful potter can make you think that wheel throwing is easy, but it is a skill that requires lots of patience, practice and passion. You don't have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great. Start today!
