The Artist's works on the 4th floor, Henry Luce III Library of CPU

Renowned ceramic artist Nelfa Querubin-Tompkins launched her latest book, The Winding Road to Change: a memoir, last February 21 at Central Philippine University, Jaro, Iloilo City. She was born in Concepcion, Iloilo and is currently based in the United States.

The book is an autobiography detailing her life, art, religion, and how she used her art to help others. At a young age, she started getting interested in clay as an art medium.

The book is available at the University's Student Service Enterprise for 150 pesos.

The artist is one of the leading names in contemporary ceramics. Her art is shown in exhibits and collections in the country and all over the world. She had received the Cultural Center of the Philippines 13 Artists Award for her contribution to Philippine contemporary art in 1980.

In Iloilo City, you can find her ceramic works in the gallery on the 4th floor of Henry Luce III Library,  Central Philippine University. She also has some pieces on display in the Iloilo Museum of Contemporary Art (ILOMOCA). (Read more: Inside Iloilo Museum of Contemporary Art)

She had published previous books: Peace and Joy in My Real World (2012), Life with Clay (2009), and Clay and Woodfiring: a practical guide to studio pottery and ceramic art in the Philippines (1995). These books are also available in Henry Luce III Library.

I have attended a talk by the artist last 2017 which you can read about here: Artist Nelfa Querubin-Tompkins talks Life, Love, Work (& God!) @ Henry Luce III Library.
