Patrick Mok Bio
Before my passion was diverted to ceramics, I was a cartoonist, creating comic strips for some thirty years. In 1988, I joined the pottery studio at Cedar Ridge Creative Centre and have been making teapots ever since. I now turn my works into three-dimensional versions of caricature. Instead of manoeuvring lines and dots in pen and ink, I rejoice in the multi-level enchantment of expressing through clay, using hand-building techniques in stoneware. I have changed medium and technique, but not the subject matter. Nature and its young little creatures remains my favourite subject. With basic materials and tools, clay and fingers, I strive to translate my feelings for Mother Nature into works that epitomize simplicity, brevity and the strength of life.
Patrick Mok is the recipient of New Artisan Scholarship of One of a Kind Show, 2000.
