I did not know where to post this so I thought this may be the most appropriate location. To cut a long story very short, if you know of any Japanese ceramic artists who may be interested to exhibit their work in the middle of downtown Singapore (lots of exposure and I am sure potential customers), please read the emails below and pass this along to anyone interested to contact them.
Thank you for your lovely advice. We would love to have a Japanese Ceramic Exhibition or workshop in JCC.
Unfortunately, we have yet to receive any potential proposals from interested Japanese ceramists (either in Singapore or Japan). If you have any contacts who wish to exhibit their artpiece or demonstrate the cultural workmanship, you may introduce them to JCC. For any queries, they can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 67370434.

件名: Dear JCC (RE: Thoughts and Requests for Possible Future Exhibitions)
I came to your site via the exhibition of "Chado", which I hope to
attend this coming Saturday.
I am a causal enthusiast of fine Japanese teas and tea-ware. It is to
my knowledge that in the world of ceramics and pottery, Japan
probably leads the world in the large number of individual ceramic
artists with their own studios as well as the range of creative
interpretations of this traditional art. It is therefore my own
humble recommendation that JCC considers curating a show on Japanese
ceramics, which also fits the theme of "Japanese Creative Centre".
I travel to Japan frequently and often lament that in Singapore we do
not have the same variety of fine Japanese ceramics for sale or
viewing. It is therefore my belief that it will be a productive
opportunity for japanese ceramics studios to participate in this
show, as well as for Singaporeans and tourists in Singapore to be
educated in the vast and countless creative reinterpretations of this
Japanese fine (and utilitarian) art.
