Note: Actual colours may vary due to photography & computer settings.
This sculpture shows two special colours with their own texture. Inspired by nature. It is earthenware, fired at 1100 degrees C. The movement is very small; the sculpture is turned into itself with the movement, and extroverted in its colours. The blue colour has a firm structure. The colours are designed by me.
The works are strong despite the fragile looks; because of the firm shape of a circle: literally and figuratively as well. Every sculpture is unique and handmade.
Ceramics in motion
‘Motion is a key part of the expressiveness of Cecil's sculptures. The movements show the importance of each circle of the object. Every ring is essential and influences the other: because they are all connected. Moving the sculptures leads to an ongoing change in shape, space, sound and feeling. Her creations are constructed from rings of clay, which symbolize connection. Working in an instinctive way with the earthly clay, Cecil's is looking for balance in shape, colour, material and rhythm. Listen, see, feel and experience what happens when the sculptures move and enjoy the moment’
Shipping & Returns
Based in: Den Burg
"As a curious and sensitive child/teenager I followed many art and dance classes. After one year at the fashion academy, I switched to visual arts, where the love to explore different materials was encouraged. After my graduation I started with wheel throwing and that was the beginning of a deep understanding and eagerness to ‘talk’ with clay. My sculptures are connections between my various passions: textile, clay, dance, fashion and sculpture. I love to explores space and play with rhythm, shape/form, movement, energy and sound. My work is telling you a story. Listen, see, feel and experience what happens when the sculptures move and enjoy the moment".
