Mr. Petty john has had numerous one man shows and participated in trade fairs  like Manila International F.A.M.E , as well taking part in exhibits and workshops in Japan, Korea, Spain, Taiwan  and the United States.

His two story house had an interesting gallery where his unique works of arts are displayed and sold.  Some of the items are his personal collection . Wide verandas and window characterized his home which is adapted to the tropical weather. High ceilings allows air circulation to come inside his home.

Some of the materials used in his pottery are imported from other countries. He explained that there are different types of clays found in the country. Some are ideal for ceramics  while some are used for their natural colors.

He gladly shown the tour group his own version of a kiln and a large dragon kiln which is used for firing his clay.

Petty johns expressed that they are not able to receive walk-in visitors at their home . Appointments must be made prior hand  , However in the case of our group , a special arrangement was made !  Thus, navigational data is not provided for this way-point. He is very wary of designers who copy his designs and then mass produced them at a lower price . Most of his unique one of a kind potteries and other wares are available at Level 3 , Glorietta IV , Makati City.

Their workshop had in interesting garden with a lot of native orchids, begonias, ferns , ginger plants and large trees.
