WC01 Teapots: Process & Form by Fong Choo

This event is no longer on sale.

Friday January 10

1:00 PM  –  5:00 PM

All Levels 1 day

This workshop will demonstrate the process of making a functional teapot from the potter's wheel, as well as altering forms through hand-building. Fong Choo will teach the significance of each component; teapot body, handle, spout, and lid. Form, balance, and composition of a three-dimensional object for daily use will be discussed. Glaze decisions, firing, and scale will be a large part of the dialog.

Please see Fong Choo’s artwork in Tea and Cookies: 17th Biennial Teapot Exhibition.

Fong is a Singapore-born American studio potter and teacher who believes one must push the limits, test the waters, search, prod, and explore its many boundaries. He is best known for his diminutive, sculptural porcelain teapots and his use of low-fire commercial glazes to achieve luscious, jewel-tone effects. Fong completed his Masters of Art in Ceramics at the University of Louisville (KY) in 1994. He has been an adjunct professor and artist-in-residence at Bellarmine University in Louisville since 1990.
