For the past twenty-four years I have pioneerd the design and use of unique glazes for buildings. Together with progressive architects, I have formed a vanguard that has freed glazed ceramics from its primarily decorative purpose, as it now has the name and fame it deserves: it is a building material in its own right.
Ceramics, as malleable as they are strong, lend themselves by definition to made-to-measure projects. As does the layer of glaze which offers infinite possibilities for light reflection, absorbtion, textures and layering in the facades of buildings.
I would like to reach out and discover the unprecedented possibilities of glazed building ceramics and use them in our surroundings; the built environment.
The increased interest in ceramics has led to enormous developments in the knowledge and expertise of the material. There is so much possible outside the standard options.
Over the coming years I want to intensify my plea for this development. I want to push against the flattening of materialization and façade designs and for something more sensuality.
Architecture is the best opportunity to use the quality of ceramics on a large scale. My uniquely made recipes can be translated for use in industrial productions. This way you can feel the crafmanship of the product whilst you remove the slowness from the manual process.
