Dwo Wen Chen

Providence, RI

I was born in a little farming village in the southern part of Taiwan. I am very fortunate to have come from a family that encouraged my artistic endeavors. My greatest childhood dream was to become a bohemian painter working on the streets of Paris. It is to my greatest surprise that I now find myself to be a studio potter living in New England. To this I owe a great deal to my RISD education. Clay is a very forgiving medium. For an undisciplined artist such as myself, it suits me perfectly! I can translate almost anything within my imagination using my hands and clay. Sometimes with great success, sometimes with amusing end results! Either way, it only makes me want to explore the endless possibilities of clay-making even more.
