Wietske van Leeuwen

“The strength of van Leeuwen’s work lies in
the unity that she achieves among the various historicizing elements, as well as a balanced ‘historical’ use of colour. The glazes evoke sensations from the matt surfaces of shells to the smooth juiciness of lemons. Like a seventeenth- century painter, she combines different elements to maximize the contrast in colour and texture. All this makes her work impossible to place – each piece is a melancholy treasure.”
