Now look at this! Gertjan van der Stelt

While visiting the Goudse Keramiek Dagen last week, I bumped into the beautiful ceramic sculptures of Gertjan van der Stelt. Not literally off course  -thank god for that- but on my way to the ceramics market I passed by a gallery showing van der Stelts work – and fell in love. Take a look yourself:

It reminded me a bit of beautifully carved faceted forms of Halima Cassel. The strong geometric patterns, robust colors, playing with facets and iterations.

If you want to take a look at van der Stelts work, visit his website or if you happen to be passing by Gouda, make sure you stop by Galerie De Hollandsche Maagd.
