Create your own playful and surreal dreamland at home by adopting a ceramic artwork by renowned Singapore artist Ahmad Abu Bakar.

Handmade specially by Ahmad for his exhibition Candy Garden at the Esplanade Concourse, each piece was thrown into various sizes and forms and decorated with coloured horizontal lines based on floral motifs and geometric designs. The popsicle-coloured pieces are symbolic of how our natural and built environments come together to create ideal living conditions.

We thank Ahmad for generously allowing Esplanade to put a limited number of these cheerful ceramics up for adoption to loving homes. Adoption contributions will go towards Esplanade's efforts to continue bringing the uplifting power of the arts to everyone in these uncertain times.

As a charity and not-for-profit organisation, Esplanade depends greatly on public support to fulfil our mission of entertaining, engaging, educating, and inspiring through the arts.

- We seek your understanding that we are unable to allow the selection of specific artworks for this adoption drive.
- Adopters will be contacted in mid-December 2021 about the collection of your artwork(s).
- Do contact [email protected] if you wish to adopt the artworks in a permutation that is not listed above.
- This campaign is not eligible for tax deduction.
