Workprocess

Today, the work process (the end of the first semester) was evaluated with an interim, internal jury. I had to present my studio work for four judges. Next week I will met my supervisor and I will hear how I am judged.Will I be on the right track to traverse the master thesis?

Assisting Linda Quinlan

Before christmas holiday I was telling you that I started practising again with wheel throwing. It had a reason. A few weeks ago I was asked by Linda Quinlan, MA student at the Piet Zwart institute, for joining her graduation project 'Pottery Percussion'. She would like to make a film of my hands when I was throwing. Last week we filmed, we had two days. It was really fun, but also exhausting because I had to hold the position for a while. I made my largest vase ever! More info soon.

Pick up moulds from China

This week was really busy! Wednesday we could pick up our moulds from China! We had to go to the harbor of Rotterdam, it was really amazing to see all these containers!
The boxes where already put out only we had to find our own moulds, but they were all packed in so it was very difficult to find. After an hour I founded them and I will probably take them to Gent .

The emperor has chosen

Past September, Maik Mager, Vincent Bos and Dico Kruijsse went to Shanghai again to install our 'gesamtkunstwerk' at the studentbienale in Shanghai.

This historical ceramic city, Jingdezhen, used to manufacture all of the emperor’s ceramics.
The emperor ordered all this ceramics in series of three. Keeping the best work for himself and smashing the other two.
In doing so, he insured no one else could ever own a piece of ceramic resembling the emperor’s collection.
In this installation the same choises have been made. The pieces either wait for destruction or eternal glory in the emperor’s collection.
