BIOGRAPHY

Alvin Tan Teck Heng’s (b. 1961, Singapore) twenty-year long love affair with pottery began on a whim, when a friend brought him to Sam MuiKwang Pottery, a multi-generational family of potters in Singapore. It was there that he commenced five years of intensive study under a master potter. Since this time, Teck Heng has exhibited widely in his home country and internationally, including solo exhibitions in Singapore, the Philippines, and Australia.

He was the recipient of prestigious awards at the 4th Global Art Movement Competition at Toyota City Museum, Japan, and the Golden Teapot Competition organized by Ying Ge Museum, Taiwan. In addition to his individual art practice, Teck Heng co-founded the first registered pottery club in Singapore, the Nanyang Clay Group, and has played a lead role in organising many ceramic exhibitions and events throughout Asia. He lives and works in Singapore, but frequently travels to work overseas where access to different resources widens his creative possibilities.
