Mieke Everaet

Clay has always been my primary focus: the physical character, the sensual contact and the water; and the shaping, cherishing and rubbing of the clay.

Mieke Everaet, loyal to the pot shape, makes graceful porcelain bowls. The structure of her fine inlay work emphasises the shape. The pieces of pastel and grey porcelain are arranged meticulously. They seem to want to capture the essence of the pot. The rhythm of the vertical, coloured strips seems to lift the bowl up.
