Ceramics, stoneware in a gentle mix of eight different earth colors. The form of the circles is changing. This sculpture is very flexibel and has beautiful high tones in it (to hear).
Ceramics, earthenware. Many different blue grey tones in a special rhythm. The size is variable. You can change the form. Play with it.
These two sculptures are chosen to be in the 2017 World Ceramics Biennale in South Korea. It is quite an honor and the invitation makes me feel very proud and grateful. The opening will be on April 21. There will be artists presentations, lectures, workshops and a lot of colleagues from all over the world.
I am really looking forward to visit the Exhibition in the Icheon Ceramics museum, to take part in the symposium and to meet my colleagues to talk and discuss about contemporary ceramics.
The raised funds will be spend on my journey to South Korea.
I am really excited to explore what influences all this will have on my artistic development.
Thank you in advance to make this possible.

Some more information about the symposium:
This biennial aims to look into the change that has happened in the world of ceramics through the last several decades, examines the current status, and presents and discusses future prospects for ceramics. The symposium will have a look at the path that ceramics has taken, and delves into the issue of locality and local identity in the era of globalization, with which contemporary ceramic artists are faced now.

Risks and challenges
I am quite an expert in packing up my sculptures:)
Several years I am working with a Dutch door-to-door-shipment company.
However, if something is broken, I will repair it. When that is not possible I will replace it in consultation with you.
