Tan Sock Fong
Singapore

Glass artist and printmaker Tan Sock Fong pursued her passion in glass through a National Arts Council overseas study bursary, majoring in glass at University of Wolverhampton, UK, 1995. Sock Fong shares her extensive experience and skills through her art practice and innovative art programmes at her studio at Emily Hill and at many local institutions.


She exhibited at Singapore’s first glass exhibition Glass: Passage of Evaluation, 1993, and was later artist-in-residence at David Ruth Glass Studio, Oakland, USA, working on cast glass. Sock Fong’s glass works have been exhibited at many venues over years.


In 2013, Sock Fong had an invitational solo exhibition at the Hsin Zhu Glass Museum, Taiwan. Her 2015 sculpture Kindling Aspiration was commissioned for the Marina Bay promontory Torch Up opening programme of the 28th South East Asian Games, Singapore. More recently, Sock Fong was commissioned for a glass wall feature Dancing Hues of Life for Ng Teng Fong General Hospital. The sculpture was completed in 2015 and launched by the Prime Minister Mr Lee Hsien Loong at their opening; Phase Two was completed in 2016.
