I like my ceramics to have a sense of excitement and a freshness, and they must be tactile. Making is exploring the physical law of the material, clay, in order to give form at the sensual engagement I have with. It is a celebration of a tense moment of meeting to create spacious, fine, delicate forms that reveals the speed, fluency and the ultra plasticity of clay. Into my thrown and altered forms I try to put an extremely personal sensibility that goes hand in hand with the tension and flexibility of a wet pot.I ame to develop a great variety of senses, to show the results of a very physical and palpable human gesture which is mysterious like the sexual experience. My ceramics are metaphors for ‘feeling’.
The making of:
Thrown and altered forms, no-two-alike forms.
Clay = Saint Aubin clay, stoneware, a very plastic clay with a warm colour. The family Hins (father and sons) runs the only clay quarry in Belgium, at Saint Aubin, Wallonië, the south part of Belgium.
