It is mostly food that I am most curios about Ugu Bigyan’s after reading numerous posts about it. I am not crazy about pottery you see though I did enjoy a short workshop at Clay Art Garden some time ago. First, I thought it was a humble dwelling with 3 or four small nipa huts at the most so the spacious garden was a big surprise. Two, I also didn’t have an idea there were other wares on sale apart from gigantic pots. I don’t believe I am the only one who thinks big bangas are horrendous. Plus, even if I do find one that interests me, I sure won’t spend thousands for it. Maybe rich lolas will. Lastly, why was I the last one to know that it’s so near our province. I’ve wasted my life! That’s all I can say. haha!
My uncle and his wife were looking at getting something from Ugu Bigyan’s annual birthday pottery sale and my sister and I tagged along. He was able to get one but he no longer had a lot to choose from as stocks were almost out that time. Loved it nonetheless! I went crazy over the half-furnished walls, the pieces of drift wood and clay stuck on the pathway, the handmade clay tiles plastered on the wall, the decor, the layout of the kubos, the glazed wall “paintings”, the accessories and sculptures on sale, the furniture, the ponds, the installations and of course, the facade. Everything is creative and inspiring. EVERYTHING!
But you know, I thought the trip was still worth it without the food.
