Eugene Hon's sculptures featured in Ceramics Art and Perception, issue 81

Cover Ceramics Art and Perception; Issue 81 Featuring my work
It has taken 24 years for my work to feature in an international magazine, even though I have had numerous articles written about my work in local publications. My work is represented in all the major art galleries in South Africa and in numerous private collections locally and abroad. This can partly be attributed to the cultural boycott, effective during the apartheid era. Another reason is most certainly the impact of my position as dean of the Faculty of Art, Design and Architecture at the University of Johannesburg; a term of six years during which I did not produce ceramics actively. I trust the article will provide insight into my ceramic concepts and showcase the diverse styles, techniques and processes of my ceramic sculptures since the start of my ceramic career in 1986.

The article was written by Ingrid Stevens, associate professor and head of Department of Fine and Applied Arts, Tshwane University of Technology, South Africa. She has written numerous reviews on my work; covering a number of exhibitions during my ceramic career.The article is published in the latest issue of Ceramics Art and Perception, issue 81 (2010), the only academic accredited research income generating publication.

hi eugene... big congratulations! i love the "ceramics: art and perception" magazine and subscribed for a year a while back but not now. i was, however, delighted to see that you were in this issue. i intended to go out and purchase a copy to read the article (and i still may get a copy) but i followed the link you provided and through some glitch in the software, i was allowed to see the entire magazine online. therefore, i was able to read the entire article about you (and the one about the fellow louisvillian featured on the cover). the article is wonderful and i was very happy to see that they included some pictures of your dreamy drawings. i think the article really presents your work ethic and conceptual development process accurately so far as i've been able to glean from reading your blog this last year and a half. anyway, congrats again... i think if i ever got published in that magazine, i'd have to conclude that i had officially arrived. cool animation in the next post too.
