Kwok Pong Tso was born and raised in Hong Kong. After receiving some education in Hong Kong he decided to come to the USA to begin exploring the culture while continuing his education.

In 2009 he completed the undergraduate art program at Northwest Missouri State University. He then worked as a teaching assistant and adjunct teacher teaching Ceramics at Iowa Central Community College.  He  completed his Master of Fine Art degree at the University of Iowa and is now teaching Ceramics at Northwest Missouri State University.

The concept of his recent work is form and grows from his curiosity about the relationship between one object to another.

Artist statement:

"In my work I aim to explore the joyful, interesting, and mysterious relationship between how one object fits unexpectedly into another and becomes a whole new composition that has simple components but a complex configuration. It is my intention that by using my work, I am able to trigger the viewer to look closer and rediscover the ordinary, yet unfamiliar relationships that are within all objects as well as all human beings. Through sensation, communication, investigation, and exploration, both objects and humans are able to obtain appropriate space and attention. I hope my work can provide this perception of the relationship, but more importantly is to enrich this relationship and establish a sense of place as well as the idea that we are all part of something, something bigger."
