ABOUT JOSE SOLON PERFECTO

Jose Solon Perfecto is the Prodigal Son of Contemporary Philippine Ceramics. He began his path in pottery at the age of 8, under Jon Pettyjohn. In 2018, after spending half a decade as a master cigar blender and young executive at Tabacalera Incorporada, the artist pursued the unhurried life and moved to a surftown. Solon Perfecto’s works were shown in Metro Manila from 1998 to 2016, making their way to private collectors all over the world. He is the resident artist & part-owner of NOOD New Form Art House. With training in classical music & communication arts, as well as a history in competitive pistol shooting, Solon Perfecto has a highly-disciplined tactile approach to the state of flow that allows him to create his pieces. In La Union, find his works on display at NOOD or join “Clay Bodies: A Yoga & Pottery Workshop” (by appointment).
