Based in Maryland, Christine Goh makes ceramic tableware and decorative vessels that aim to spark joyful moments and fuse cultural connections. Her work expresses a confluence of purpose and passion for material, color, form and detail. The collections are rooted in architectural design, influenced by art and inspired by nature. She is motivated to capture the ephemeral light, color and pattern in the changing seasons.She creates stoneware and porcelain forms that are wheel thrown, altered, carved and assembled. The surfaces of the vessels are canvases for calligraphic brush work, mono-printing and mark making with layers of slips, stains and glazes.
Artist Bio Born in Singapore, Goh holds a BFA and Bachelor of Architecture from the National University of Singapore. She worked in architecture and interior design. Her pathway to a creative journey in ceramics is non-linear. While working in Tokyo, she enjoyed the use of ceramics in a daily context and admired contemporary ceramics as fine art. The experience deepened her appreciation for ceramics as a craft that connects the human spirit. She started delving into clay in a small pottery studio in Bangkok. Currently based in Maryland, Goh launched Clay Elements in 2017. She is a member of the Glen Echo Pottery Gallery and will serve as its gallery director in 2024. Show & Sale
