Meet the newest member of the clay meets wood series – wall pieces

Clay Meets Wood - wall piece
Clay meets wood- Wall piece zij

This new member of the Clay meets wood series is created in the same philosophy as the other compositions: delicate organic clay waves, playfully contrasting the wooden base of the wall piece.  What I love the most about this wall piece is the play of light and shadow.

Layered – is the next composition of the ‘Clay meets Wood’ family. It’s based on my previous works where I experimented with layers of clay and later layers of clay mixed with other materials, such as glass.

This new variation plays with the solidness of wood, using it as a firm base where the clay layers can float upon.This structure brings a lightness and airiness to the composition

An interesting detail is that I deliberately applied the golden ratio for this composition. Maybe an obvious thing for artists, but a whole new discovery for me.

Clay meets wood
Clay meets wood - inspired by nature's organic forms contrasted by the robustness of wood

The first one of a series of compositions named ‘Clay meets wood’. The theme of this series is how ceramics and wood coincide, complement and contrast each other.

This composition is inspired by nature’s delicate organic forms in contrast with the robustness of wood, therefore I decided to use only natural materials: clay without any glazes or slip; wood without any oils or varnish.
