HEO Ceramics is the Los Angeles–based studio of artist and designer Karen Tong. The daughter of Vietnamese refugees and a former resident on the Navajo Reservation in New Mexico where she lived and worked for five years, Tong’s aesthetic often joins together seemingly incongruous worlds. Equally comfortable drawing inspiration from Bauhaus architecture, Pee-Wee Herman pop, Southeast Asian design, and Southwestern desert forms, Tong’s work offers an unlikely and unique perspective.
