Martha Meets the Dragon

I mentioned in an earlier post that we had a visit from a celebrity on the morning of our wood-firing in May.  The news is out! It was none other than the television lifestyle host, Martha Stewart!

Martha Stewart made a stop-over at the dragon kiln on her Southeast Asian tour to film the sights and sounds of Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore as part of a documentary travel series for her show.  In Singapore, she also visited the Botanic Gardens, Marina Bay Sands, Bollywood Veggies, to name a few.

Mr & Mrs Tan played host and gave her a personal tour of the Pottery Jungle. Martha witnessed and took part in the lighting of the first flame to start the firing. She also watched a rare demonstration by Teck Whui, who masterfully threw a huge pot on the kick wheel.

Read about her impressions of  her visit to Thow Kwang Dragon Kiln here.
