Mels Boom: Inspiring ceramic artists since1999

Peter Hiemstra

‘I choose heads of animals on human bodies in order to convey a stronger message.‘

With sculptures of human-like animal figures, Peter Hiemstra expresses his amazement at what is happening in our world. The choice of animal characters enhances the expressiveness of his statues. The colourful and precise finishing evokes a surreal atmosphere, making the observer curious about its meaning. Peter’s special glazing method plays an important part in this.
