Vigan's Pagburnayan: Meeting Philippine's National Folk Artist, Fidel Go

Right after a fun tour at Baluarte, Kuya Arnel of Calesa #157 brought us to one of Vigan's must see attraction, the Pagburnayan. This is where traditional burnay jars of varied shapes, designs and sizes are made. It was also here that we get to meet and talk to Vigan's pride, Philippine's National Folk Artist, Mr. Fidel Antiporda Go.
Fidel Antiporda Go, National Folk Artist

Mr. Go although pure Chinese by blood, has been living in the Philippines for a very long time. He speaks in Filipino and warmly welcomed us with stories about their business and was even candid about his life here in the Philippines. He said their Burnayan business, the Ruby Pottery Shop started in the year 1920 by his father when eventually most of the family went back to China until he was the only one left in the Philippines. Now at 72 years old, the artist is still passionate at his craft.

He was named as National Folk Artist by the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA) in 1990.
