While clay artist Jocelyn Teo has created works for local celebrities such as Sugie Phua and Sylvester Sim, the 30-year-old never imagined that she would one day receive an email query from the manager of international R&B star John Legend. The clay artist of eight years then had to contain her excitement before her six-minute FaceTime call with the “All of Me” singer. The project was a birthday gift for Legend’s model wife Chrissy Teigen, and it required Teo to create 15 miniature food sculptures replicating the dishes from Teigen’s cookbook “Cravings”.
“Nothing is impossible,” said Singapore clay artist Jocelyn Teo on Instagram over the weekend, after it was revealed that American singer John Legend had given his model wife Chrissy Teigen miniature food sculptures created by the artist. Teo had been working on 15 miniature food replicas based on Teigen’s recipe book “Cravings” since August this year, and had even discussed with the 38-year-old “All of Me” singer over Facetime about the project. According to Teo, it was Teigen who had introduced Legend to Aiclay, the name of Teo’s miniature sculpture business.
