I found a great portal website, Share, that showcases a bunch of contemporary dutch ceramic design and thus thought today a profile of a number of Dutch artists was in order. Here's a quick overview of highlights in case you don't have the time to visit all of the websites individually. The Share website also has links to galleries, different organizations, design groups, work centres, you name it - it's a great resource.
The above work is by the artist Simone van Bakel. Her work isn't limited to ceramics, she in corporates a variety of materials, all of which are well mastered.
This following work by Paula Bastiaansen you'll likely recognize from the pages of Ceramic Art and Perception, among other publications. She has a nice website with a bit of info about her process.
These next two are by Judith van der Boom, the second in particular I enjoy the humor in the thought of having to look up their skirts in order to have a drink. She's also got a great blog worth a read.
Here's a piece called Chrysanthemum by Lonneke Kuysten.
Unfortunately not all of the websites are in English, so sometimes they just end up being pretty pictures without context, but that's okay too I guess, like this beautiful work by Anita Manshanden.
I love the simplicity of the forms and the install in this work by Vincent de Rijk.
And I've always been a huge fan of Esther Stasse's work, so I'll end with these and leave the rest of the exploring on the Share website for you to enjoy!
