Ceramic Design

About me

At this page I could just put my C.V. But first I would like to mencion something which is to be said "not done" in a porfolio.

In 2005 I gave birth to my first son.

Becoming a mum changed my life and art work.

It certainly did´t help the productivity. First of all because I had less time but also because it was very dificult to centralize on art. So for a few years I concentrated more on crafts.

On the other hand I don´t think I would have been able to make sculptures like "Ooievaar ´s zak"  (Stork´s bag), (still in proces) or "miskraam" (miscariage).

Ooeivaars zak (still in process)

Miskraam (miscariage)

A while ago I read an interview with Tracey Emin about motherhood, being an artist and being a woman. It sounded very familiar.

In dutch we say that the children are pulled out of the clay. (waar komen de kinderen vandaan?; die worden uit de klei getrokken)

My thirst boy was pulled out of me but grew up in clay. I might have lost a lot of time not making art but I really enjoyd playing and teaching all ceramic skills to my children.

Now they are bigger and I am back sculpting and designing.

Meanwhile I teach, organize workshops and work on assignments.
