White Teapot with Construction Base

White Teapot with Construction Base, 2014

Billy Cho came to Iowa from Hong Kong to attend college.  He studied ceramics at Iowa Central Community College and Northwest Missouri State University.  After three years of working as a studio artist, he decided to return to school to pursue his MFA at the University of Iowa.

"My intention is to draw attention to a vital element of everyday life; the form and surface I use are often inspired by contemporary ceramics as well as historical references and utilitarian objects.  In this series of work I am experimenting with different architecture elements within my works, creating a different perspective on utilitarian objects."
