ABOUT ME

Dr. Martie Geiger-Ho earned a Ph.D. in interdisciplinary fine arts and a M.F.A in ceramics and painting at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas in 2003 and 1994. Her dissertation, "Pathways of Transmission: Investigating the Influence of Chinese Kiln God Worship and Mythology on Kiln God Concepts and Rituals as Observed by American Ceramists" is an ethnographic study of the worship practices associated with the ceramics industry in Jingdezhen, China. In 1987 she received an M.A. in ceramics and sculpture from the University of New Mexico, and a B.F.A. from Arizona State University in 1984. Inspired by myths and surviving rituals about the craft and processes of pottery making and firing, her figurative ceramic deities, paintings and installations are modern interpretations of pottery legends. Prior to her current teaching at the University of Brunei Darussalam as senior lecturer of art in 2012, Dr. Geiger-Ho taught ceramics and sculpture as assistant professor of art at University of Pittsburgh at Bradford, Hong Kong Baptist University and Mississippi University for Women.
