Figurative stoneware from Daniel Bende, ceramist

Purmerend, The Netherlands

Announcement    Welcome to the Etsy shop of DFB-ceramics,

On this site you can buy original handcrafted stoneware ceramics from Daniel Bende, ceramist. The shop is under construction, soon more articles ...

I make hand thrown figurative human and animal figures (especially birds) on the (potters-) wheel. The forms refer to traditional ceramic forms. The stoneware sculptures are finished using self-developed glazes and oxides and slips. The images are fired (in oxidation or reduction, depending on the desired effect) to about 1230 0C (cone 7 to 8).

More information about this process can be found on the website: http://www.dfb-keramiek.nl/?lang=en

I invite you to check out the sculptures and sincerely thank you for your interest.

Inspiration

Every culture on earth has a long ceramic tradition. Functional forms where decorated from the beginning of mankind and formed to touch all of the senses. What inspired man since its creation to make aestetic objects in clay? I can not answer this question, but I do understand, I have the same urge. I am therefore a ceramist.

Dirt from the earth

Clay is a modest resource with the potential to capture ideas and emotions. Clay gives the possibility to satisfy deep-seated desires. But that's not the only thing that clay has to offer, it is older than the gods and gives a connection with the origin of mankind. In a society that is increasingly growing further apart from its roots, clay gives me a place where I can stand with my feet on the (clay) ground. In the (western) world where technology continually progresses and people are alienated from themselves and their environment, hand formed ceramics gives the human scale back. Not the tallest skyscraper or the smallest chip, but the pure form of a "pitcher", shows the ingenuity and aesthetics of the human spirit.
