Started in 2005, Chawan Expo has been a very successful international non-profit expo
project, touring for exposition in Europe, America and Asia. Independent from politics and
religion, the exposition is organized to foster well friendship between International Ceramist.
It is meant to be a bridge between Artists and international art world, opening new
possibilities for each artist, exposing their Chawan in places that are beyond their reach.
During the period of Expo, there will be seminars, demonstrations and master classes
arranged to encourage a greater scope of sharing between the International and Local
Artists. Also, forthcoming Artists will be invited to create a few works and scheduled to fire
the Thow Kwang Dragon Kiln together. Following the opening of the kiln, a small
exhibition/showcase would be put up to compliment each and every participant for his or her
contributions. A further elaboration of the event will be given after the selection.
