Besides my training ‘Graphical Design’ at the Academy of Fine Arts, I took a 4-year ‘Ceramics’ course and an additional 2-year specialisation ‘Ceramics’ in part-time Art Education.
From this background for my ceramics work I particularly start from delineated shapes and strong colours. The fine finish, colour and/or texture contrast help determine the overall image.
For the realisation of my ideas I work with cast clay (stoneware and porcelain) and moulds.
I personally mix the colours by adding colour pigments and oxides to a base enamel or self mixed glaze.
I bake my creations 2 or 3 times, with one minimal pass at 1240°C (1300°C for porcelain).
My plates and bowls can be bought as art objects or kitchen ware. A personal accent to your interior or a festive touch on your table.
Made with great care, love and passion, Hilde.
