Fidel Go – National Folk Artist, Pottery

While in the Ilocos Region recently, we were privileged to witness Philippine National Folk Artist for Pottery, Fidel Go, 68, a Filipino-Chinese mestizo, at work.

Watching him perform intently at his craft with his hands and feet was, at the least, an inspiring experience.

His works find themselves displayed in several of the country’s plush hotels reaching as far as Palawan and Davao in the south.
