    Studio Demonstration with V. Chin
    at his teaching studio


    Closed: Seating is limited to 14 registrants

    Vorakit Chinookoswong, known widely as V. Chin, has been crafting fine porcelain and stoneware pieces for over 30 years. A veteran of art festivals and gallery shows throughout Texas, Chin creates glossy stoneware vases, bowls, cups, and other pieces bearing his signature clay frog.

    Striving for a balance between aesthetics and function, Chin's goal is to simply create "good" ceramics. His subtle glazing adds an extraordinary level of elegance to his pottery.

    Born in Thailand, Chin moved to Japan at an early age, where he graduated from the Kyoto Institute of Technology. He trained as an apprentice with several prominent Japanese ceramic artists before moving to the United States in 1980.

    Beyond Surface: Identity Through Clay

    4th Annual Ceramics Symposium
    October 20-21, 2018


    $75 Members   $95 Non-Members   $35 Students*

    * full-time student at an accredited program

    ClayHouston is pleased to announce the 2018 Fall Symposium, “Beyond the Surface: Identity through Clay.” This year we are excited to have Jennifer Ling Datchuk and Adam Field for our visiting artists: Jennifer and Adam are two prolific ceramic artists with diverse backgrounds and multi-faceted studio practices. Bridget Bray, the Nancy C. Allen Curator & Director of Exhibitions at the Asia Society Texas Center, will be our Keynote Speaker; and Anna Walker, the Windgate Foundation Curatorial Fellow for Contemporary Craft at the Museum of Fine Arts (Houston), will be our Panel Moderator.

    Both Jennifer Ling Datchuk and Adam Field utilize surface in their work in expressive ways, and both use art to explore issues of identity and cultural history. Jennifer Ling Datchuk is a Professor at the Southwest School of Art in San Antonio, Texas. Datchuk works with porcelain and other materials to discuss fragility, beauty, femininity, and her personal history and experiences as an Asian-American woman. Adam Field is a full-time studio potter living in Helena, Montana. Field learned traditional Korean pottery techniques in Icheon, South Korea – today, he makes his own porcelain pottery and Onggi jars with hand-carved designs that are inspired by nature, geometry, and his travels.

    Location: All events will be held at the Department of Visual Arts, University Academic Center (Bldg. 18), Houston Baptist University, 7502 Fondren Road, Houston TX 77074-3298
