Collection Description

This creation is inspired by the artist’s love for the birds in her cherished garden.

I am a red-whiskered Bulbul – known as the “nightingale of the east.”

A bird who once lost but has regained its freedom,

I escape into a new story.

Dwell not on things of the past;

Behold! Something new springs forth.


The leitmotif that runs throughout the TABLENOTES COLLECTION is the freed bulbul. It is often caged for its rich melodious songs and whistled queekey! Freed from its cage, amidst Peranakan tiles, re-imagined Straits Chinese blue and white bowls and our local frangipani flowers, he will once again fly and feed on berries from trees!  A conversation starter with your guests/diners!
