Achène, wooden base providedCeramic art work by Nadine de Winter, 2018. Stoneware, pigments and oxides. double Firing Raku. 2018.

My profession as a researcher allowed me to observe, under the microscope, planktonic organisms, at the origin of our evolution, seeds containing in their genome, the present, the past and the future. From the atom to the cosmos, everything is linked. I am therefore inspired freely by these archetypes.

Artistic ceramic is often adorned with enamels, which are revealed by firing whether in an electric, gas or wood kiln. Firing can last from ten hours to more than a week ...

The goal is not only to seduce the spectator by the visual but also by the touch and feel. And you can touch this piece time and again, you will never alter its brilliance ! This is why the art of ceramic spurs, stimulates, awakens our senses !
