Tat Yan Soo was born on November 1955. As a lover of nature and avid gardener, he wanted to create designs that revolved around flora and fauna. He also loves to cook, so he strives to craft products that are decorative, functional and durable. The tabletop wares he creates can be proudly used to visually enhance the presentation of food and create a certain ambience.
Tat Yan Soo's experience in the ceramic field spans 28 years - he studied ceramic art in Singapore and Japan. He uses only natural materials and the wares are high fired to ensure that every piece is food-safe. His products are also microwave and dishwasher safe.
Tat Yan Soo's workshop is situated in an area where fields are no longer fertile, so instead he is able to offer residents another option. Artisans live within walking distance hence they are able to work as well as take care of their family at the same time. The consequence is a laid-back, slower pace of living and working, but then quality is assured as every single item is carefully and tediously crafted.
The teapot and tea cups that I purchased from Tat Yan Soo are treasures. They are not only beautiful but very functional. Though we use the set often, it always feels like a special occasion. Thank you so much for sharing these lovely pieces of art with us!
I just received the large banana leaf tray. I had previously purchased (4) of the banana leaf bowls. What a striking way to serve food - and very functional as well. Thank you, Tat Yan Soo, for your love of cooking and your stylish pottery! Most Sincerely
I just received my 'banana leaf' platter and I just love it. It makes a lovely addition to the serving pieces I already own.
In the past 4 years I've been collecting the stoneware from this talented artisan. The workmanship is excellent, lasting all this time and still looking brand new. What I love most is that each piece, being handmade, is unique unto itself. making my table set look to be made just for me, piece by piece. Excellent talent!
Today I received the ""Fish Legacy"" stoneware tea set- and I love it. It's absolutely charming, and I'm looking forward to getting much use out of it. Thank you!
Wow! I was so impressed by my order and the wrapping my order came in was a work of art in itself........I will absolutely order again from this artist, I am so impressed by the quality and workmanship of the product I recieved. Thank you Novica and Tat Yan Soo.
