Giorgio Morandi (1890-1964) was an Italian painter and etcher. He specialized in still lifes that radiate great tranquility. From the moment I got to know his paintings, I am a fan. Morandi opts for simple subjects and leaves out the unnecessary. The painted objects are hardly recognizable, everything is a bit crooked and messy. The order is important, the arrangement of forms and colours, the space between them.
You can see these elements in my sculpture. It's made of four different kind of stones, with natural colours: travertine, bluestone, marble and alabaster. You can arrange your own still life, as most fit for the situation.

Fieke de Roij, stone sculptor, based in Utrecht, the Netherlands.
My sculptures are clear and abstract. They are created intuitively, by combining shapes and materials. While working I searche for simplicity, tension and balance. The sculptures evoke an atmosphere or association and give room for individual interpretation.
I uses a form language that is universally recognizable and appreciated worldwide. You can find my work in private collections across many countries.
After years of working with all kind of materials, in 1994 I discovered stone sculpting. From that moment my choice was made. With the start of my company ‘Werk in Steen’ in 2005, I wanted to further professionalize my working as a sculpture and create a place to convey my love for the profession.
Since 2007 I organize classes stone sculpting in my studio in Utrecht city. And also summer courses on locations in The Netherlands, Germany and France.
In 2019 I celebrate my 25 years of stone sculpting and the many years of teaching.
