I vårt fönster mot världen
Vernissage lördag 8 mars
Janne Hieck, b. 1977 in Flensburg, Germany
I am a german master-potter who lives and works in Northern Denmark.
I'm interested in natural materials and processes in ceramics. I started working with wood- and saltfiring in 2005, and I make my own clay-blends and glazes with raw materials, rather than refined ones. I work primarily on the wheel, and I am looking for a natural touch and warmth in my work: not everything has to be perfectly cylindrical and clean. I am interested in leaving the mark of my fingers on the pieces, as well as what the glazing-, and finally the fire process may add to the surface and structure of the pieces.
I intend that my pieces be used in the daily life of their new owners, and that's why I focus on domestic ware, thinking of my work to be rather unpretentious, but suitable for many different occasions.
That´s why I choose to show teapots, cups and related work here at Sintra!
