Jose Solon Perfecto is the Prodigal Son of Contemporary Philippine Ceramics. He began his path in pottery at the age of 8, under Jon Pettyjohn.

In 2018, after spending half a decade as a master cigar blender and young executive at Tabacalera Incorporada, the artist pursued the unhurried life and moved to a surftown.

Solon Perfecto’s works were shown in Metro Manila from 1998 to 2016, making their way to private collectors all over the world. With training in classical music & communication arts, as well as a history in competitive pistol shooting, Solon Perfecto has a highly-disciplined tactile approach to the state of flow that allows him to create his pieces.

His first major solo exhibit, “Etudes In Survival,” was on display at Aphro in Makati City for the whole month of May 2023. He is currently in production for commissioned works with Filipino restaurant, Hapag, in Manila and Porch Coffee at the Clark Parade Grounds in Pampanga.
