Sweet Stuff From My Sweatshop!
Tiramisuzi is the alter-ego of designer/maker/teacher Susan Stack. She has been making quirky and fun limited edition artwork since her arrival to the little red dot in 2009.
Thanks for checking out my one woman ‘sweat shop.’
It’s hot here, lah. But, alas, my slogan ‘ Sweet Stuff From My Sweatshop’ refers to more than just the humid tropical weather. Working as a creative in Singapore has a few disadvantages. Being surrounded by 3rd world countries where labour is cheap does us no favors. Who values the unique and the handmade in a nation that embraces name brands and buys art as investments for future financial returns? Why would you support local artists works, when you can buy artwork from some famous International artists of higher status? To be labelled ‘local’ seems to be a dirty word in the small art community here. Would you pay S$30 for a unique handmade ceramic bowl when you can buy one at Daiso for S$2? I hope that you are one of the few that does see the value in hand made.
Most of my creations are based on random illustrations and photos from my travels and there’s usually a narrative theme. You may not realize it, but ceramics take a LONG time to make. You should try it sometime. It’s both a very unforgiving, but a very rewarding art form. Recently my work has been more driven by clay, but you never know what stuff I might be cooking up. So keep checking back and have a look at my instagram feeds for more recent creations and works-in-progress. I hope you like what you see!
