Beautiful little piece of art. Captured the expression of an angry cat perfectly. This too was a gift for my niece and she loved it. Speedy delivery and very securely packed in a gift box inside another well padded box to ensure safe delivery to Australia. Very happy with both brooches. Thank you Harriet.

Beautiful quirky and an oh so expressive piece of art. Exquisitely made and captured the expression of a cat turning its back to you. This was a gift for my niece and she loved it. Harriet packed the brooch in a tiny box with a ribbon, enclosed a lovely thank you post card and boxed both a in secure package to ensure safe shipping. Speedy delivery to Australia. Very pleased with product and service. Thank you Harriet.

About

Watercolours from the kiln

I grew up in a large creative family near Amsterdam.
My dad was a fine artist and had his studio at home. As a child I could join in at his drawing classes whenever I wanted and had all kind of drawing and painting materials at my disposition. From him I learned many academic techniques and I've also seen how he made a living with his art and how provided for his ten children. This requires concentration and great flexibility. How he juggled with creativity and the entrepreneurial spirit is still a great inspiration for me today.
At art school I studied graphic design and illustration. Later on I have specialized as an illustrator for children’s books, magazines and did lots of schoolbooks.
I lived in Spain for a while and there my interest in painting ceramics began.
After some experimentation I fell in love with painting with cobalt oxide on porcelain , a very classic combination that doesn't cease to fascinate me. Each ceramic artist will agree that this is a very gratifying combination. Every culture has its own interpretation of blue and white ceramics.
Bisque is the porous unglazed pottery that is fired once but not yet glazed. Painting on it in this stage has great similarity with painting with watercolours. That is why I like to refer to my blue and white pieces as baked watercolours.

I have my studio in 's-Hertogenbosch and do everything there, from forming the clay, painting, glazing, firing, photographing and shipping.
I also give workshops to small groups.
