CERAMICS & CLAY ©

CERAMICS

When I just started in 1987, I only made sculptures in clay, they were fired, but not coloured with pigments or glazed.  In the fall of 2020 I started with engobes, pigments and oxides to color my sculptures. There I learned to work with engobes, glazes and firing. Initially I focused on creating leaf and flower shapes and creating nature elements such as sky in the form of clouds, rainbow, sun with cloud, water in the form of a drop + waves, fire in the form of flames, earth in the form of hills with footprints.

CLAY SCULPTURES
The joy of making always plays a big part in my life. Gradually I try to deepen the content, in shaping and in materials and techniques. This often contains a gradient, for example that I first drew a certain subject, then painted it, then I executed it in clay or in wax and then cast in bronze or made in stone. For the various developments of this, look at my pages stone sculptures and bronze sculptures. It goes into processes that take years.

I often work small, because this remains easier to transport and exhibit myself. Sometimes I made larger sculptures, this was a physical challenge, because I had major back surgery in 1984.

In the early days that I made sculptures, I only modeled in clay, I modeled portraits, human figures, animals and fantasy figures. On this page are a number of my clay sculptures that I have made over time. And sometimes I went to paint them. Below are photos of some examples.

The types of clay I have worked with are fine and coarse chamotte in different colors and self-hardening Plus clay.

You can always ask information about the sculptures and take a look at the sculpture pages. Contact
