Pepsy Kettavong


Pepsy Kettavong is a Rochester area sculptor. He's responsible for the "Let's Have Tea" sculpture by the Susan B. Anthony House, Nathaniel Rochester sculpture at Nathaniel Square at South Avenue and Alexander Street, and has done some work at the Mushroom House.

Kettavong was born in Laos in 1972. In 1980, his family fled their Communist-controlled country, lived in a Thai refugee camp for two years, and then were brought to Rochester after being sponsored by the Lakeville United Church of Christ. He had always had an interest in making things from clay, so he attended the Rochester Institute of Technology's School for American Crafts. He graduated in 1995, and moved to Nebraska. He has since moved back to Rochester, where he now resides.1
