Peter Hoogeboom, 2018, Netherlands


Since 1994 when I introduced ceramics in my jewellery, I’ve been working with clay. People regard this my signature material with the production method of slip casting in particular. In this series I focus on distorted, broken ceramics: metaphors for damaged life. Shapes are deliberately deformed and pressed, and pieces that appear cracked or misshapen out of their moulds and would have been discarded in the old days, are now appreciated.
