EVENT:  International Ceramics Festival Keramisto

LOCATION: Milsbeek

DATE: 16-17 september 2023

Keramisto is a homecoming for me. Long ago, I visited this most important ceramic event in the Netherlands a few times. I remember a small, bulbous vase with extremely thin walls that I bought there. How it could be made so thin anyway, I wondered. I had a busy job as a consultant, but went for a few trial lessons on a traditional spade wheel at a pottery museum for relaxation. I immediately knew what I wanted to do and asked at the next Keramisto who I could get solid lessons in turning from. The answer was unanimous: Katrin König. The following year I inquired about glazing expertise. Rob Muylaert was recommended by all. Both artists have been my wonderful teachers for years. At a subsequent Keramisto, I volunteered at turning demonstrations. Coincidentally, I also got to know Jens-Peter Planken, and helped him sell his North German ceramics those two days. The following year, we left together from the market to his pottery in Germany, where I got to participate for ten days. I also helped Rob sell at this market once. Always I enjoyed the exuberant atmosphere and the high level of this so difficult craft.
In my sneaky thoughts, I hoped one day to stand there too.
I have now succeeded, with even two collections: urbane chic and wabisabi-style.
My homecoming…
See you on 16 and 17 September in Milsbeek!

EVENT: Ikebana exposition & Japan market

Location: Rotterdam/ Botanical Garden Trompenburg


 Date: 2-4 June 2023

Time: fr. 13-17 h, sa/su 10-17  h

Japanese flower arranging is truly an art. Depicting a whole world in miniature with just a twig, a flower. When I take a picture of my ceramics, I first walk through our big garden for one of those little flowers or sprigs. And I put that in the vase, a little gracefully. And experience thunder – my green just doesn’t want to talk about the flowing time, about the essence of life, about letting go of the ego. And just hope no one notices that and merely looks at the vase. Next Friday, Saturday and Sunday you can come and see and buy my ceramics, during the big Ikebana exhibition at the botanical garden Trompenburg in Rotterdam. And secretly, I hope to pick up something from arranging flowers and branches the Japanese way. But don’t count my new photos on that later! See you 2-4 June in Rotterdam!

My two ceramic kilns are working overtime, and so is the energy counter 😊… With this humid weather, but the vases and bowls and Japanese tea bowls don’t want to dry. Something about sunshine – and hup I put everything outside, and a short time later inside again and then outside again… And since this is not getting anywhere either, I have transformed the living room – trestles with shelves and on them everything I just turned. And happy to know: everything is ready for the big ceramics market in Gouda, everything I’m making now is for the markets in Leiden, Rotterdam and Maaseik/BE.
Take a look at my new work soon in Gouda, put in your diary 18 and 19 May.
