In Jan 1999, Loy Yan Ling took her first lesson in clay and was under the tutelage of Jessie Lim since till 2012. Her subsequent relocation to Kuwait (2006 to 2009) and travelling experiences brought about further opportunities to learn from ceramics artists such as Mohd Esa (Kuwait), Douglas Philips (UK), Candone Wharton (US, Bali) and Hiroshige Kato (Japan).
In 2012, she left her teaching career and started Euphoramics from her home studio. Currently Euphoramics is a 1000 sq ft creative space and Yan Ling conducts ceramics courses and provides guidance to other potters there.
The learning experiences gleaned from the different artists have shaped Yan’s understanding when working with clay. Their continuous push of the boundaries of clay and their discipline in their practices have inspired her. Yan draws on emotions and memories when she creates her works. She believes memories connect people and hopes through her works, they can rekindle our fondest memories and experiences. She’s intrigued by the alchemy of ceramics and its seemingly bottomless well of knowledge. Hence her ideas and presentation of works evolve with her experiences working with different materials and treatments.
