About Kevin Kao

Kevin hopes to create a body of work that will serve as a foundation for his graduate thesis exhibition (slated for spring 2015) at the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University's four-week, studio intensive program.  While at Alfred, Kevin will explore various processes thru use of their digital fabrication lab, thru study of their ceramics collection, and thru use of their library.  Alfred's summer program will afford Kevin the opportunity to explore the appropriation of historic Chinese ceramic art through the use of such technologies as 3D scanning and printing, mold making and decal work. 

Kevin’s own practice is rooted in the explorations of personal and cultural identify as an always-changing experience.  He is completing his graduate course work at the University of Tennessee at Knoxville.
